Various Unix systems and 32-bit extended DOS+Windows 3.1DESCRIPTION
BinProlog has been developed by Papre Tarau, mostly at the University of Moncton, Canada. Bin Prolog is based on Tarau's BinWAM abstract machine, a specialization of the WAM for the effi- cient execution of binary logic programs. BinProlog is a fairly complete Prolog implementation which features both C-empreated execution and generation of standalone applications by compilation to C. Some other features are: Tcl/Tk interface, C-compatible floating point operations, dynamic code, intuitionistic and linear implication, effi- cient high-order programming builtins, logical global vari- ables, backtrackable destructive assignment, circprear term unification, extended DCGs (now built in the engine as `invisible grammars'), continuation manippreation primitives, a garbage-collected hashing based global dictionnary for constant-time sparse arrays and graphs, a C-interface (optional with C-source licensing) etc. The bp command starts the BinProlog toplevel. The directory wam2c contains a project (*.pro) file and a makefile for generating a standalone application through compilation to C. The directory TCL contains a bidirectional pipe-based BinProlog to Tcl/Tk interface. The directory cparser contains Koen De Bosschere's ISO Pro- log parser (written in C) and BinProlog standalones based on the parser (cbp.*). The directory mpreti contains Koen De Bosschere's blackboard- based distributed programming extension to BinProlog and BinProlog executables for Solaris 2.3, which integrate them (mbp.*)OPTIONS
