This document, developed by the Rule Interchange Format (RIF) Working Group, specifies a basic format that allows logic rules to be exchanged between rule-based systems.
As part of its Phase 1 deliverable, the RIF Working Group defines a condition language, which is envisioned to be a shared part of all RIF dialects. The RIF Condition Language is intended to be used in the bodies of the rules in RIF Basic Logic Dialect (RIF-BLD). The condition language is then extended to Horn rules and this document specifies a presentation syntax and a corresponding concrete XML syntax for RIF-BLD. A model-theoretic semantics for the language is also defined.
