Hey! This is great! Thanks for doing it! I'll check it out right now.
> Prolog is originally written by or is based on the work originally
> developed by Mike Teng <miket at objectshare.com>, then at Digitalk, as
> part of the Prolog/V implementation distributed with Smalltalk V/286 in
> 1988. We gratefully acknowledge Mike's permission to port his code to
> The port to Squeak is the work of Bolot Kerimbaev <bolot at cc.gatech.edu>,
> a summer intern at Walt Disney Imagineering.
> Most of the changes are on LParser side (to account for differences
> between Smalltalk/V and Squeak parsing/compilation).
> Documentation is available in Word and Postscript formats, and while it
> is written for the original, it still mostly applies to the Squeak port.
> To run an example:
> 1. file in the code
> 2. LCompiler evaluate: 'Family new :? father(''John'', x)'
> A few issues:
> - Dungeons example is not complete
> - animation is done differently
> - doesn't compile some rules due to frame size limit
> - Due to a limit of a frame size, rules are limited in length
> - Explicit use of LCompiler is needed to embed code:
> (LCompiler evaluate: 'Family new :? father(x,y)') do: [:pair | ...]
> - otherwise requires change to Parser class (rather than LParser)
> Comments are welcome.
> Thanks go to Mike (design/code), Dan and Andreas (insights/help).
