3 Errors in XLISP-Agents The error code for an XLISP-Agent is not too complex. It must be able to interpret all of the possible errors that it receives, but in many cases it won't be able to do much about them. In the current implementation, the agent can't try to recover from executing a forbidden function. LSP, FA-Error-Function defined here, receives the error message and only does something about it if the amount of execution time is running low. This is the major problem for the reservation agent.

Car 1) (length answer))) (cond (answer ;; There is a flight!! (do ((1 answer (cdr 1))) ((null 1)) (cond ((LA-Make-Res (car 1)) (LA-Declare-Success (car 1)) (setq 1 n i l ) ) ) ) ) ) )) The main function of the agent, F A - M a i n - F u n c t i o n , feeds a list of triples to the host's function L H - F l i g h t s - B y - I t e m - 2 . If there is a flight available at the end of this list of requests, then it makes the reservation by calling LA— Make-Res and returning. The function L A - D e c l a r e - S u c c e s s was provided to include different ways t h a t the information could be reported.

The resource negotiator is responsible for making sure that the FA— Main-Function will have everything available for it to run. In almost all cases, this will be a trivial exercise. People will know what they want their agent to get when it goes to a location and they will make sure it has the cash or whatever resources are necessarty to pay for it. The more complicated resource negotiation procedure described in Chapter 8 is designed to offer agents and hosts the flexibility to barter their way into agreement.
