Prodigy/Analogy, which is built on prodigy, can [33] Rather than transferring tweaked solutions, DA transfers lines of reasoning. [35]

The NOLIMIT finds solutions through search, but the case saved in memory only contains the decision nodes of the final successful path. [38]

"In Prodigy, a problem is defined by the goal statement and the initial state of the problem situation." [39]

Prodigy can handle multiple goals. It takes a complex initial state and focuses on the relevent attributes for a single given goal, and finds the weakest preconditions needed for that goal.
