Item description for Prolog: The Standard: Reference Manual by C. Biro Pierre Deransart...

This is the first reference manual on the ISO international standard of the programming language Prolog. Prolog was the first logic programming language and is used in many areas in industry, such as computer aided design and manufacturing, software engineering, multimedia and documentation, AI systems and databases (expert systems, knowledge bases, man-machine interfaces, natural language analysis), and application fields like transportation, telecommunications, and banking. The book contains a comprehensible full description of the standardized language together with an executable specification. It enables system developers, application programmers and Prolog users to work with any standard conforming processor.

Reviews - What do customers think about Prolog: The Standard: Reference Manual?

A must for any Prolog programmer  Apr 26, 2006
This book is a must for anyone doing serious Prolog programming. The book itself is a standard in clarity, concision and rigor.

There are minor drawbacks:
1. Poor paper quality and binding. Any programmer striving to write portable Prolog programs would use it heavily and the poor qualify shows off in just a month of daily use. Unfortunately, the form is not at the same level as the content.
2. The predefined predicates lack a listing by page (although they are listed by topic). This makes finding a certain particular predicate rather cumbersome when looked up frequently.
3. Minor typos.

Otherwise, no one serious about Prolog can afford to overlook this book.
Prolog:The Standard:Reference Manual  Jun 5, 2000
The title of this book accurately describes its organization and content. Although numerous examples of each language feature are given throughout the book, it is definitely not intended to be a tutorial.For that purpose, a beginning user of PROLOG should look elsewhere.

However, the book fills a definite need in the PROLOG programming community. Many dialects of this langugage exist in the academic world and this book provides standard definitions and usage of PROLOG syntax and functionality. Hopefully, it will provide more uniformity for the various implementations of PROLOG when referenced by the compiler writers. But it is definitely useful for programmers who are writing PROLOG programs.
