Many systems are at least partly or implicitly based on term rewriting. Examples are functional languages, computer algebra systems, and theorem provers. We give a brief survey of these systems, and provide a more in-depth comparison of the features of systems that use term rewriting as their primary execution mechanism. We give links to rewrite tools and projects as well as pointers to notions and techniques covered in the preceding chapters.
