object matching with multislots

  • Anonymous - 2009-05-03

    (defclass Man (is-a USER)
      (multislot friends))

    (defrule rule1
       (object (is-a Man) (friends ?f))
       (printout t "We have a friend." crlf))

    (make-instance jack of Man (friends create$ pete))  matches


    (make-instance jack of Man (friends create$ pete sue)) does NOT match

    What am I doing wrong?

      Your pattern matches a Man having exactly one friend. You want to use either (friends ?f $?) or (friends ? $?) and your make-instance call can be simplified to (make-instance jack of Man (friends pete sue)).
