Hi All,

I'm thinking about looking at some type of rule engine for a project
I'm working on.  It's part of an embedded server, and it needs to
respond to various types of external inputs and assert various outputs
as specified by various sets of rules (e.g. "if temperature > 75F and
door signal is not open then turn on this X10 device for 10 seconds).
The configuration of rules can potentially be quite complex.  We
already have a web GUI which allows the user to configure the various
rules and convert this into an XML document.  There is nothing yet on
the embedded side to do anything processing of the rule set.

Can anyone recommend any C based rule engines which may be adapted to
do this type of rule processing, or if not then maybe offer some
suggestions on how best to implement this?

I have only played with it a little bit and avalued for one application.
I have not used it in any life application myself.
I say it is work to check out.
