The Underlying Architecture
Opening Date: November 28, 1994
Features of the underlying architecture..
- General extensible network
- Network can be extended into three dimensions
- Network represents two types of information:
- Spatial location modification "moving in space"
- Escapements to functions
- Network has an infinite number of possible
First Prototype Applications
Will use the String Class described in the C++ literature.
Will define basic string functions
update string (or part)
append/prepend to string
search string for word(s)
replace word(s) in string
Class for Service Functions:
Load and Save string clusters
use HTML format to store strings (text between headings composes object)
object name (optional) under heading
test in Mosaic
Try to use a Net filament to join all of these functions together..
String Constructor tool:
Has interface panel, wire behind sends message into constructor for String class object
Interacting with the Constructed String Object
KnowCore front panel
operates loading/saving of "Globular Clusters" of strings
a "Galaxy" of strings is created when multiple clusters interact
Corellator Agents look for strings with like contents (string matching)
Aggregator Agents cluster matched strings passed by Corellators
Other agents can operate on strings, deletion etc.
