PROLOG by example. How to learn, teach and use it. (English) Zbl 0649.68004

Symboblic Computation - Artificial Intelligence. Berlin etc.: Springer- Verlag. X, 382 p. (1988).
‘PROLOG by example’ is a remarkable book: Apart from a few pages consisting of an introduction to PROLOG, it contains a host of problems (175), together with the programs for them and comments on these. As the title suggests, it is intended to introduce PROLOG by way of (numerous) examples, which - by the way - are taken from various different subject areas: e.g., arithmetic, learning, modeling, drawing, planning, etc. It is therefore also recommended for those readers who like to get an idea of the wide application range of the language PROLOG.
