Logic programming emerged from the realization that expressing knowledge in an appropriate clausal form in logic was akin to programming. The basic construct of a logic program can be viewed as a rule. This chapter will review rules from a logic programming perspective with an eye to developments within modern rule languages. It mentions rule interpreters, hybrid computing, interaction with the Web, and agents. An extended example is given concerning rule-based modelling and simulation of traffic at airports.
