This paper discusses the capabilities of APL2 for the implementation of frame systems and semantic networks, and for the use of object-oriented programming techniques. The fact that the frame is a basic data structure of APL2 makes this language very appropriate for the development of artificial intelligence applications using the indicated techniques. Examples are given of the way in which they may be applied to realistic situations.
