I have no idea what CLIPS is but I have found this:

"Integration/Extensibility: CLIPS can be embedded within procedural code, called as a subroutine, and integrated with languages such as C, Java, FORTRAN and ADA. CLIPS can be easily extended by a user through the use of several well-defined protocols. "

What suggests that it is possible.

I think this may be useful:

There's something about clipsmfc.h and clipsmfc.cpp files for interfacing with C++ (MFC I guess).

And there's something about clips.dll & intergration with C++

There you will find "CLIPS C++ Class wrappers"

Tomlinson & ghg sites were all shutdown.  The only one left seemed to be sourceforce.

I added  the example code in into my MFC application and built successfully.  But it gave me a runtime error "unable to locate CLIPS entry point for function InitializeCLIPS".

Could someone with successes help we help me with this?
