Do I have to know LISP to use OKBC ?


No, knowing LISP is not necessary to use OKBC.

However, the naming and argument conventions provided in the specifications will be familiar to Common Lisp programmers and can be used directly. To be used in other languages, they require using language-specific bindings.

For instance, in C language, each OKBC operation has to be prefixed by `okbc_' and dashes replaced by underscores. In Java, each OKBC operation that uses a KB argument is defined as a method of the class OkbcKb and dashes are replaced by underscores.
