User Manual

See the User Manual and Help for additional information about this agent.

ICL Solvables

The Alarm agent provides three solvables, specialized for use by Natural Language agents, in particular DCG_NL. These are used primarily to add new sentence types to DCG_NL. These are not described here, since they require specialized knowledge of DCG_NL.


Time triggers are also described in the OAA Developer's Guide, and elsewhere.
