 Spice Pages: Capers (Capparis spinosa)
Thus, capers resemble several spices of the cabbage family (cress, fl and white mustard, wasabi and horseradish), all of which contain mustard oil glycosides.
Capers can today be found growing wild all over Mediterranean, and are frequently cultivated (e.g., in France, Spain, Italy and Algeria; furthermore, Iran, Cyprus and Greece produce significant amounts); their origin is, though, supposed in the dry areas of Western or Central Asia.
Nevertheless, the flowers of wild caper bushes are a common sight in all countries surrounding the Mediterranean Sea, extending even to the Sahara in North Africa and the dry regions of Central Asia, where the plant is thought to have originated.

 Caper story - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The typical caper story involves one or more crimes (especially thefts, swindles, or occasionally kidnappings) perpetrated by the main characters in full view of the reader.
The caper story is distinguished from the straight crime story by elements of humor, adventure, or unusual cleverness or audacity.
For instance, the Dortmunder stories of Donald E. Westlake are highly comic tales involving unusual thefts by a gang of offbeat characters — in different stories Dortmunder's gang steals the same gem several times, steals an entire branch bank, and kidnaps someone from an asylum by driving a stolen train onto the property.

 Case-based Planning: The CaPER Project   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
In contrast, our CBP system, CaPER, is based on a massively frame-based AI language (PARKA) and can do extremely fast retrieval of complex cases from a large, unindexed memory.
The ability to do fast, frequent retrievals has many advantages: indexing is unnecessary; very large casebases can be used; and memory can be probed in numerous alternate ways, allowing more specific retrieval of stored plans that better fit a target problem with less adaptation.
The CaPER prototype is being tested in a transport logistics planning domain, UM Translog.
