    I am a newbie to AI programming and want to learn PROLOG. So what tools do I need? And also which is the best IDE for PROLOG programming?

    That depends on what OS you are running.

    I don't currently have Prolog installed on my PC, only on my old iMac which isn't here at the moment.
    I wrote a few games on it like checkers, gomoku and othello. I'm still very much familiar with the language and can certainly help you out when you get an environment set up for it.

    Just hunt around. Do a few google searches. It shouldn't be too hard to find something decent.

    Prolog isn't the sort of language that has a popular IDE.

    I've used SWI Prolog and like it.

    There's actually one for Windows: Visual Prolog.

    And of course you can always fall back on Vim and Emacs plugins.
