This book is designed to be used with a Prolog listener, and will guide you through the building of four applications. One of the terms has a procedural flavor, and the other a data flavor. The arity tuttorial the fixed number of arguments attributes, fields the predicate has. You should see a message indicating that your source file, ‘mortal.

The arithmetic expression looks like an arithmetic expression in any other programming language.

Two predicates with the same name and different arity are considered to be different predicates. In fact, the term program does not accurately describe a Prolog collection of executable facts, rules and logical relationships, so you will often see term logicbase used in this book as well. Similarly, we can assert the azmi fact that Socrates is a person.


Prolog must be able to handle arithmetic in order to be a useful general purpose programming language. Hello World yes You are now ready to learn Prolog. Logic Programming Let’s look at the simple example in more detail.

As you amxi your own version you can of course change the game to reflect your own ideas of adventure. In classical tutoriwl we might say “All people are mortal,” or, rephrased for Prolog, “For all X, X is mortal if X is a person. Here is a two-line program, meant to help you learn the mechanics of the editor and your listener.

If you forget the period and you probably willyou can enter it on the next line with a ‘return.

Programming in Prolog is significantly different from conventional procedural programming and requires a readjustment in the way one thinks about programming. You can go to other rooms, look at your surroundings, look in things, take things, drop things, eat things, inventory the things you have, and turn things on and off.

The lost treasure with magical powers is your nani security blanket. This declarative style of programming is one of Prolog’s major strengths. For this reason, Prolog provides the built-in predicate ‘is’ that evaluates arithmetic expressions.

Similarly, the exercises will ask you to add predicates to each of the other applications. Go back to the edit window and add the line person plato.


This predicate is called when “nanisrch” starts up. Go back to the edit window and add the line.

The game’ ,nl, write ‘is the primary example used in this tutorial. This is evident in the vocabulary of Prolog. As with any language, the best tutoriql to learn Prolog is to use it.

They can be used in rules as well. Now let’s change the program. The game will be implemented from the bottom up, because that fits better with the order in which the topics will be introduced.

You are in the kitchen. From these two logical assertions, Prolog can now prove whether or not Socrates is mortal.

These include ‘greater than’, ‘less than’, ‘greater or equal than’, and ‘less or equal than. In our sample program we saw three examples of predicates. Here are two example predicates.
