If the dont-create-knowledge-base-p argument is t, use-loom does not create a new knowledge base. Otherwise, it defines a knowledge base named packageName-KB.
The knowledge-base-name argument is a symbol or string to be used as the name of the new knowledge base. It overrides the default name, packageName-KB.
The path-name argument is a string specifying the file to be used for saving and restoring the knowledge base. The pathname may be supplied here, or it may be passed directly to save-kb.
The loom-imports argument is a string, or a list of strings, identifying Loom symbols which are to be shadowing-imported into packageName. These symbols override their counterparts in the common-lisp package, or in other packages inherited by packageName.
The compile-loom and load-loom utilities are used to build the Loom system from source files or binaries. After loading the required files, these utilities ask the user to call use-loom to set up an initial knowledge base.
(use-loom "USER") ==> NIL (use-loom test :dont-create-knowledge-base-p t :path-name "test-kb.lisp") ==> NIL (use-loom 'foo :knowledge-base-name "FOO-KB" :loom-imports '("ASK" "TELL")) ==> NIL
