The Population statement
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.
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.
