CCRC implements a subset of Kyburg's rules for statistical inference. The system states from 1961 and is briefly described in "The Reference Class," (H. Kyburg Philosophy of Science 50, 1982). Consult the paper "Computing Reference Classes" (R. Loui, in Kanal, L. and Lemmer, J., Uncertainty in AI, v.1, North-Holland 1987) for a precis of the ideas underlying this program. This document is only the skeleton of a manual. It is designed to get the novice on the program as quickly as possible, and to provide some guidance for advanced questions. This piece of software is the extended version of a prototype principally intended to assist AI research on reasoning with uncertainty. This program is a small prototype extended so that it can be patched into larger experimental systems.
