Here are two example predicates. A Prolog program is a Prolog logicbase. The other predicates have only one clause.

Your mission is to find the nani. Along the way there ami be diversions where the same commands are rewritten using a different approach for comparison. Prolog must be able to handle arithmetic in order to be a useful general purpose programming language. In addition to ‘is,’ Prolog provides a number of operators that compare two numbers.

They can be used in rules as well. Then select File Save from the menu. Go back to the edit window and add the line. In Prolog the normally clear distinction between data and procedure becomes blurred. These include ‘greater than’, ‘less than’, ‘greater or equal than’, and ‘less or equal than.



While Prolog is a fascinating language from a purely theoretical viewpoint, this book will stress Prolog as a practical tool for application development. Similarly, we can assert the simple fact that Socrates is a person. The predicate should succeed only if the customer is a valid customer with a good ttutorial rating, the item is in stock, and the quantity ordered is less than the quantity in stock.

One of the final tasks will be putting together the top-level command processor. We will finish with the natural language interface. There will be two types of example code throughout the book.

Prolog is equally adept at supporting top-down or inside-out program development. This predicate is called when “nanisrch” starts up. This message is followed by the typical listener prompt. Tutrial can”t turn on the cellar’ ,nl, write ‘light, but there is a flash light in the desk in the’ ,nl, write ‘office you might use.

Notice the order of the symbols in the greater or equal than and less than or equal operators. Tytorial leads to code that is easier to write and easier to maintain.

It”s going to be a scary night’ ,nl, write ‘and when you get the Nani it”s not going’ ,nl, tutorila ‘to smell right. Enter the pro-gram in the edit window, paying careful attention to upper and lowercase letters and punctuation. Its syntax calls for the use of operators, which will be described in more detail in chapter The arity is the fixed number of arguments attributes, fields the predicate has.


That is, the concept of evaluating an arithmetic expression is in contrast to the straight pattern matching we have seen so far. Sample source code pdolog each of the programs is included in the appendix.

Adventure game Intelligent genealogical logicbase Expert system Customer order entry business application The adventure game will be covered in detail in the main body of the text, and the others you will build yourself based on the exercises at the end of each chapter.

One of the terms has a procedural flavor, and the other a data flavor. In fact, the term program does not accurately describe a Prolog proolog of executable facts, rules and logical relationships, so you will often see term logicbase used in this book as well. Almost every concept in Prolog can be referred to by synonymous terms.
