SICStus: Information about SICStus Prolog for Unix.
SICStus Prolog is a portable implementation of Prolog, written at SICS
(Swedish Institute of Computer Science) with support in part from
Ericsson Telecom AB, NobelTech Systems AB, Infologics AB, and
Televerket under the Swedish Board for Industrial Development of
Written in C and Prolog, the implementation is based on the Warren
Abstract Machine (WAM). The programming environment has benefited
from public domain code contributed principally by R.A. O'Keefe and
D.H.D. Warren. An execution profiling package was written by M.M.
Gorlick and C.F. Kesselman at the Aerospace Corporation.
SICStus Prolog is portable to most UNIX(TM) machines (Berkeley UNIX is
preferred over System V). It provides indexed interpreted and
compiled predicates mixed arbitrarily, unbounded precision integer and
double precision floating point arithmetic, unification and term
comparison of cyclic structures, a garbage collector and stack
shifter, attention key (control-c) handling, a "procedure box"
debugger, dynamic interfacing to C functions, backtrackable
side-effects, coroutining facilities, execution profiling, and a
machine-independent WAM compiler.
SICStus Prolog also includes a module system, Boolean constraint
solver, native code compilers for Sun-3/4 and 68K-based NeXT, "Block"
declarations (generalizing "wait" declarations), Prolog queries
callable by C programs, support for building stand-alone applications,
a Prolog library, a facility for storing Prolog clauses on files with
user-defined indexing, a graphics package using InterViews 2.6, a
graphical interface to the profiling package, a multiprocessing
package based on the Linda model, exception raising and handling,
several new built-in arithmetic functions, and time-out and socket
communication primitives. SICS Aurora and Echo is a parallel emulator
for Sequent Balance, Sequent Symmetry, Encore Multimax, and BBN
