Frame-based Editor

A frame-based editor is a programming language that uses frames to store information. In the field of Artificial Intelligence, frames are often used to represent knowledge in a way that's more intuitive than alternatives like formal logic. Frames can be thought of as templates for creating objects, with slots or fields providing detailed information about each object's attributes. The structure allows for inheritance relationships and default values to be defined at different levels within the frame hierarchy, making it easier to model complex systems and capture real-world scenarios logically.
