Surikata (http://surikata.sourceforge.net) is a syntactic theory
formation system. It enumerates spaces of artifacts in arbitrary
decidable languages. Given a decision procedure for a language,
Surikata uses compression to search for syntactic patterns in the
space of all accepted strings of the language in order to induce a
probability distribution that will bias the order of the enumeration.
This bias is then used as feedback to bootstrap the enumeration.
Surikata also allows the user to interactively rate observed
strings of the language in order to give them higher importance for the
A repository of version controlled source code will soon be available
for download (http://sourceforge.net/projects/surikata/files). All
system documentation will be available through the project wiki
