Stuff with the Perl Foundation. A couple of patches in the Perl core. A few CPAN modules. That about sums it up.

AI::Prolog article in The Perl Review

[ #26290 ]

For anyone who's interested, the next issue of The Perl Review will have an article entitled "Logic Programming in Perl." This will be a greatly expanded version of my OSCON talk on logic programming.

In this article, there will be a basic introduction to Prolog, via AI::Prolog. I will also be discussing its strengths and weaknesses vis a vis Perl and relational databases.

For those interested in the topic, it's also worth looking at Logic, a rather interesting take on logic programming by Luke Palmer. For much better performance, there's also Language::Prolog::Yaswi by Salvador Fandiño García. The latter allows you to access SWI-Prolog from Perl.

  • It's a good article too. :)

    The first people who will get to see it will be the YAPC::EU attendees. Just a couple of minutes ago I delivered the final product to Alberto who is going to print up a bunch in Portugal thanks to Outcome Technologies [], one of the big sponsors of YAPC::EU.

    I'll be talking more about the issue in a couple of days, but now I'm dead tired. I've been working on it almost non-stop for the past two days (well, I did go out with Josh, but nothing else I swear!). Alberto is quite the task
