Subject: [Leica] Prolog (was: OOTA "WWYC" P)

I have fond memories of the one and only Prolog program I ever wrote, for an Aritficial Intelligence course.  It was a group effort - a children's storyteller.  We peopled it with a cast of animal characters, put in things they could do, food to find and eat, ways they could interact, problems to overcome etc.  Every time you ran it you got a different story out of it, thanks to rand(x).  It was a ton of fun - thanks for reminding me.

(is Prolog dead? I would imagine so. Unbelievably strange way of writing
programs! But once you got your head round it, the fastest prototyping
language I ever used... especially for linguistics! You could just type in a
syntax, and by definition you had written a parser! Amazing).
