    I'm also trying to learn prolog, bob, but the language looks extremely complex. Online tutorials will help a bunch!

    You had a similar posting on Prolog earlier. Why did you not continue the thread? (Trying to increase postings???)

    Whether I create a new thread or continue a post I will have the same amount of posts overall. I chose to make a new thread because the first, the way that it started and the way it wound up, wasn't really what I am looking for now.

    Prolog is a langauge that was developed for programming AIs. It is very different from C++.

    I've had a class in prolog, it's not too hard, just totally different then C/C++.

    I also recommend that you guys learn Scheme and ML, you should definatly learn at least one functional language ( or maybe I should phase it "function-based language"). In functional languages the solutions to (certain) problems are often much more elegant and intuitive then in say, C++.

    Prolog, is short for Programmable Logic, and I guess would be called a logic based language.

    Another good language used in AI is LISP. That is another interesting language to learn.

    Don't waste your time learning Prolog, you'll virtually never need it. It's a waste. You'd be much better off learning Perl or Oracle-- atleast these you have a chance of using.
    It is not the spoon that bends, it is you who bends around the spoon.

    I am going to learn one of those, but Prolog is a "just for fun" language for me.

    Question

    I can't remember - is Prolog an compiled or interpreted language? Also, what kind of Prolog environments are there?

    Prolog is a compiled language. As for environments, I have Win-Prolog and Visual Prolog. I'm not sure what else is out there.
