6 Rule Sets and Rules
6.1 Rule Sets
A rule set is a collection of rules that together solve some (portion of a) problem.
Defines a ruleset with the given name.
A rule set must be activated in an inference environment to be used in a inference. (See activate in Section 4.1, Rule Set Activation).
Multiple rule sets may be active in any given inference environment.
Currently, there is no way to deactivate a rule set.
