ChatterBean is an AIML interpreter (also known as "Alicebot") written in pure Java. Its ultimate objectives are:
ChatterBean is free software, licensed under the GPL. All the usual claims about help wanted and no guarantees apply.
Program D is a Java AIML interpreter. The status of Program D is uncertain at this time, however we have located a project using Program D on Google Code: Using ProgramD AIML bot as a personal assistant.
Program O is an AIML engine written in PHP with MySQL. Demand for a PHP/MySQL version of an AIML interpreter continues to be stroing. Program E became an orphan project and has known bugs. Program O is under active development by Liz Perreau and a group of dedicated open source developers.
Program E is a platform for running artificial intelligence robots. It is written in PHP and uses MySQL for its backend database. Program E runs bots that are written in Artificial Intelligence Markup Language or AIML.
Paul Rydell was the original author of Program E. It has since been worked on by Anne Kootstra and Icomsec. You can find Program E on Sourceforge

Program V is a Perl implementation of an AIML interpreter. It is AIML 1.0.1 compliant. V relies on the industry-standard use of mod_perl (for Apache) so that the web server can handle many of the non-AIML-related tasks that other interpreters (like Program D) handle themselves.

Kim Sullivan gives us Program P, a.k.a. "PASCALice". P is written in Delphi, and is released under the GNU GPL. Kim's page also provides an AIML checking tool called ShadowChecker.

PyAIML is an AIML interpreter implemented as a 100% pure Python package. The design mantra is "simplicity": the package weighs in at around 1000 lines of excessively-commented code, with no outside dependencies beyond the Python standard libraries. Adding support for advanced features found in most other interpreter packages (such as built-in web servers and fancy user interfaces) is left as an exercise to the Botmaster.
Nicholas H. Tollervey has announced the release of Program#, an AIML interpreter in .Net, under the GNU GPL. According to Nicholas, "It was developed using the 1.1 version of .NET but I see no reason why 1.0 shouldn't work. I'm also pleased to say that it works with Mono (tested with v1.0.5). I've had quite a bit of fun integrating it into Windows.Forms applications, Windows services and Web services. I've also implemented a couple of 'custom tags' (not included) that will do silly things like search Wikipedia and translate using Babelfish."
You can download Program# and read more about it at the web site:

the Alice chatbot hosted in a notepad text editor with an additional script processing language for authoring dialogs to assist in creating new AIML which extends and develops the program's personality.

Long-time Alicebot community member Kino Coursey brings common sense to ALICE through AIMLpad with his CyN project, a new experimental Cyc enabled AIML Interpreter. (CyN = CYc + program N).
Kino writes, "Project CyN is the merger of a AIML interpreter used to develop chat bots with the OpenCyc inference engine. This unique tool allows the product of one of the largest, continuous AI projects to be accessed by one of the largest chat bot development community. Basically Cyc + Program N = CyN.
One of the first questions that interested programmers want to know about OpenCyc is what kind of natural language interface is there and can they talk with it. And one of the things that interested programmers who learn AIML ask is how to make their chat bots appear smarter. CyN tries to address the desires of both communities."
libaiml C++ AIML Interpreter is an AIML interpreter fully written in C++ from scratch. It is designed as a static library. It currently runs on Linux. It is still in development.

J-Alice is an AIML engine written in C++. It comes with a builtin IRC client, with support for multiple channels and servers, and a small webserver. Each IRC setup (per irc network/server) supports configuration of an IRC Server, to allow the botmaster, for example, to connect and control the bot, and even pretend to be a bot with your favourite IRC client.
RebeccaAIML is a Windows/Linux Object Oriented C++ chatter bot api/interpreter for AIML (Artificial Intelligence Markup Language) from the ALICE project. It includes comprehensive documentation and samples as well as showcases/teaches popular and recent C++ practices.
Rebecca is open source and licensed under the LGPL license. The project resides on Sourceforge at http://rebecca-aiml.sourceforge.net.
RebeccaAIML has been compiled and tested underneath Windows XP as well as Linux Fedora Core 3. However, it should be easily movable to other flavors of Linux or other Unixes easily.

is implemented in SETL, and old language based on Set Theory and Mathematical Logic. More a formal specification for AIML than a practical working application, Prorgam M is one of the most compact implementations at just under 1000 lines of code. You can read a liitle more about AIML in SETL here.
If you really want to get into Program M, you will need to download and install SETL, which runs only on Linux machines. You will also need to set up the files in the config subdirectory. If you get into any AIML software as a developer, these files, along with Prorgam M, may prove a useful reference point for your work.
|default.aiml||A default AIML category if no other AIML exists.|
|files.txt||A list of AIML files to load.|
|macrosubs.txt||AIML macro substitutions.|
|delims.txt||Sentence splitting delimeters.|
|formalsubs.txt||Formal speech substitutions.|
|normsubs.txt||Sentence normalization substitutions.|
|person2subs.txt||1st Person - 3rd Person pronoun swaps.|
|personsubs.txt||1st Person - 2nd Person pronoun swaps.|
|defaults.txt||Predicate default values.|
|pronouns.txt||Personal pronoun predicates.|
The AIML "brain" files of the ALICE chat robot personality are interchangeable between all AIML implementations. We provide them here alongside the program M code for completeness. This is the latest most up to date version of the ALICE brain released by Dr. Wallace. See AIML sets below to download the ALICE brain as a single zip file.
