  • What exactly is AI::Prolog going to do?
    • In the long term, the intent is to allow logic programming in Perl. However, I realize now that many people don't know what that is, so I'll write another entry to explain it. It's fascinating, but not something done much in Perl (because Perl has no native ability to do that, aside from a limited equivalent with regular expressions).

      • I like the sound of this. I've not tried to build SWI-Prolog and either of the XS modules that wrap it, but would like to have some Prolog-ish rulesets once in a while. The prior attempt [cpan.org] at a Prolog-in-Perl hasn't moved in years. Starting over with the WAM (Warren Abstract Machine) [searchspaniel.com] Prolog engine sounds good to me. (Yes, I did some Prolog back during the AI wars.)

        For those that don't know what we're talking about, you might want to check out a Prolog Tutorial [google.com], there are quite a few available.

        In the long
