<p>The design and implementation of a distributed AI programming shell, DAIS, which provides an integrated, domain-independent programming environment for building distributed AI programs on PCs, are described. The target platform is the DOS environment, and DAIS has been implemented in C. The DAIS distribution characteristics, architecture, and knowledge-representation scheme are discussed. Its rule-based features and communication functions are examined. A significant deviation in DAIS's production system capability is the absence of optimization during the pattern-matching phase. Some plausible enhancements for DAIS are indicated.</p>
