, the Rule Engine for the JavaTM
|Jess Factoids are odd little bits of information that are more entertaining than useful. I felt that they needed a home, too.
Why does Jess use "nil" when Java uses "null"?
- Short answer
- Because CLIPS does. Remeber that Jess borrows from CLIPS syntax.
- Longer answer
- Because LISP does! Recall that Jess traces its lineage to LISP and LISP uses NIL, too.
Give yourself extra points if you knew this... - JM
- Long answer
- Because the word nihil in Latin means nothing.
