There are a few rules for it--grep for "=". The "=" character is just
syntactic sugar in Notation3 for daml:equivalentTo: when CWM reads in the
file it will automatically convert all occurances of "=" to

You could scribble down the rules that you always want to apply into a
local rules file, and then use the following alias:-

alias cwm='python pathTo/cwm.py --apply=pathTo/myRules.n3 '

this will apply the rules in myRules.n3 to the input non-iteratively, i.e.
the rules will only be applied once to the store.

As for the rules that you might want to use, you have rules.n3, and also
Jos DeRoo's transctiption of the RDFS entailment rules:-


But note that that file is non-standard Notation3 (it has a couple of
quirky things that only Euler, Jos's N3 tool, can understand, AFAIK).
