An effort has been made to extend the matrix-oriented MATLAB syntax so that a generic expert system development environment can be incorporated into the control environment. Knowledge constructs such as rules and facts could then be handled by the language parser. The aim is to provide an integrated environment for coupling numeric and symbolic processing. A control system design package that can provide such an integrated environment is described. The issue of coupling numeric and symbolic computation, knowledge representation, and inference mechanism is examined.
