Visual Prolog is a powerful programming language combining best features of logical, functional and object-oriented programming. It counts PDC Prolog and Turbo Prolog as its predecessors.
The goal of Visual Prolog is to support industrial strength programming of complex knowledge emphasized problems. It supports advanced client-server and three-tier solutions is especially well suited for dealing with complex knowledge.
Visual Prolog features:
* Logical programming concepts (backtracking, pattern matching)
* Algebraic data types
* A unique object system
* Multi-threading (not supported in the Personal Edition)
* Unicode support
* Automatic memory management (garbage collection)
* much more
Visual Prolog is a full-featured programming environment with:
* Integrated Development Environment
The Personal Edition is for non-commercial usage only. It creates EXE and DLL files. There is library support for: file system, console, registry, environment variables and GUI programs.
The Personal Edition has limited library support compared to the Commercial Edition. With the Commercial Edition you get additional GUI controls, COM support, ODBC support, sockets, HTTP ActiveX Support, etc.
