    anyone make any sense of this

    Anyone make any sense of this. I can't even figure out what the question is asking.
    Using C|C++ implement the unification algorithm:

    uni f(f(f(x,y),x),f(f(v,u),g(u,y))):
    -{x->g(u,u),v ->g(u,u),y->u}
    -f(f(g(u,u),u),g(u,u))

    your program should have the same behaviour as the unify with occurs check(term1,term2) build-in predicate of Gnu Prolog. Term 1 and Term 2 are 2 terms where:
    -variables are in upper case letter.
    -function symbols are in lower case letters.

    If anyone know what this means let me know.

    hmm looks like some sort of recursion using the uni function

    Code:
    uni f(f(f(x,y),x),f(f(v,u),g(u,y))): 
    -{x->g(u,u),v ->g(u,u),y->u} 
    -f(f(g(u,u),u),g(u,u))
    I'd say that this is not a C/C++ syntax.
    Making error is human, but for messing things thoroughly it takes a computer

    Looks like Lisp... Or Scheme perhaps. Any functional language if you ask me.

    well i know the unification function is written in prolog and we have to do it in c. but i don't know much about prolog or what this all means. so pretty much i'm not sure where to start with this.
