Example[edit | edit source]

List Prolog Interpreter (LPI) is a version of Prolog that can be used to write algorithms with CAWMP  because the List Prolog algorithms are in list format. See all examples.

For example:

        [       [[n,head],[[v,l],[v,h]]],
],[[[v,l], [3, 2, 1]]]).

Grammars[edit | edit source]

Definite Clause Grammars in List Prolog are like base cases, e.g. test 15:


and a "bottom case" in case it is not at the end of the string, e.g.:


given the clause:


Functional List Prolog (FLP)[edit | edit source]

Predicate names and variables may be substituted for variable names, e.g. in [[n,function],[[[n,function2],[2]],1,1,[v,c]]] function2 is passed as a variable.

Strong Type Statements[edit | edit source]

FLP may optionally use strong type statements, e.g.

,[[[[v,a], 1],[[v,b], "a"],[[v,c], [n,a]]]]).

Equals4[edit | edit source]

LPI includes a system command call equals4, which pattern matches lists and lists of lists, etc. to other lists, e.g.


        [       [[n,equals4],[[v,a],[[v,b],"|",[v,c]]]]

Findall[edit | edit source]

LPI's findall command finds non-deterministic results of its body and returns them in a list, e.g.


        [       [[n,findall],[[v,a1],[[n,member2],[[v,a],[v,a1]]],

Maplist[edit | edit source]

LPI's maplist command recursively runs a command on the given input, e.g.


        [       [[n,maplist],[[n,+],[v,a],0,[v,b]]]


International LPI API Integration[edit | edit source]

List Prolog Interpreter may run algorithms in languages other than English, through integration with a dictionary generator for other languages, documentation generator and algorithm translator.

Planned Features[edit | edit source]

SSI (State Saving Interpreter) with the redo feature in trace.
