Description: Jape is an interactive 'proof calculator': a tool designed to help with learning, teaching and use of formal reasoning. The tool operates as an interpreter; the user inputs a description of a particular logic as a system of inference rules, and Jape then displays proofs in that logic. The user is also able to control the development of proofs to some extent, by making choices for rules and/or 'tactics', and assemblages of rules, and dictating where they are to be applied.

Requirements: Apple Macintosh with at least 4MB of RAM and System 7.0 or better, or Sun Operating System with any Sparcstation, or Linux. PC version is being developed.
