The Population statement

Semantics

There are two ways to populate a concept with atoms:

  • The POPULATION statement in the adl-file
  • The INCLUDE statement to include an xlsx-file

The first method is laborious, so when you intend to change the population several times, the xlsx-method is easier.

Syntax

You can define atoms separately and you can define the pairs in a relation. Both methods result in added population for each concept.

POPULATION Tree CONTAINS
    [ 
      ("Oak")
    , ("Birch")
    , ("Willow")
    ]
POPULATION personBank[Person*Bank] CONTAINS
    [ 
      ("John", "ING")
    , ("Jane", "TRIODOS")
    ]

The list of pairs is a comma-separated list between square brackets. Pairs are comma-separated pairs between round brackets. Each atom is enclosed in double quotes.
