Oops... sorry I neglected to bind that

[[
Cwm (pronounced coom) is a general-purpose data processor for the
semantic web, somewhat like sed, awk, etc. for text files or XSLT for
XML. It is a forward chaining reasoner which can be used for querying,
checking, transforming and filtering information. Its core language is
RDF, extended to include rules, and it uses RDF/XML or RDF/N3 (see
Notation3 Primer) serializations as required.

Cwm is written in python; it is part of SWAP, a Semantic Web Application
Platform. It is open source under the W3C software license.

By design, it agrees with TimBL and me on matters of
Web Architecture and Semantic Web Architecture.
We maintain hundreds of cwm/N3 tests, and every
once in a while we do a release which sorta certifies
all of them. Any untested behavior of cwm is
as likely to be a bug as a design feature, keep in mind.
