Agent programming methodology
Four programmed aspects define each building block of an aggregate agent(p.25):
  1. Declaration of the conceptual schematic string(p.23) and its associations in the Copycat Slipnet(p.7)
  2. Declaration of schematic string representing signal(p.11)-to-operon association in a Copycat Workspace(p.7)
  3. Declaration of schematic operon sub string which when signalled will be deployed into an active Copycat Workspace
  4. Codelet Perl is Larry Wall's programming and scripting language.  It was originally designed as a glue scripting language for Unix but it runs nearly everywhere.  Its great for text processing.  Much of AWF's toolset is written in Perl.  Useful Perl details:
    • False => 0, and or the empty string ''.  
    • True => any number except 0 and any non-empty string such as 't' or 'false'.  
    source code associated by Slipnet declaration (1) with the active deployed schematic string (3)
State changes of the agent are restricted to those that can be represented by changes to the deployed schemata
Aggregate agents emerge(p.24) from:
  • Temporal chain of programmed signals linking operational codelets
  • Cascading of deployed codelets generated by operon grouping
