Lolli can be viewed as a refinement of the the Hereditary Harrop formulas of Lambda-Prolog. All the operators (though not the higher order unification) of Lambda-Prolog are supported, but with the addition of linear variations. Thus a Lolli program distinguishes between clauses which can be used as many, or as few, times as desired, and those that must be used exactly once. requires: ML updated: 1992/11/08 language: Parlog package: SPM System (Sequential Parlog Machine) version: ? parts: ?, documenation author: ? location: ? ftp://nuri.inria.fr/lang/Parlog.tar.Z description: a logic programming language ? reference: Steve Gregory, "Parallel Logic Programming in PARLOG", Addison-Wesely, UK, 1987 restriction: ? no source code ? ports: Sun-3 ? updated: ?? language: Prolog package: SB-Prolog version: 3.1 ? parts: ? author: interpreter location: ftp://sbcs.sunysb.edu/pub/sbprolog description: ? restriction: GNU General Public License contact: ? warren@sbcs.sunysb.edu ? updated: ? language: Prolog package: XSB version: 1.2 parts: interpreter, preprocessor(HiLog), documentation author: XSB research group / SUNY at Stony Brook location: ftp://sbcs.sunysb.edu/pub/XSB/XSB.tar.Z description: XSB extends the standard functionality of Prolog (being a descendant of PSB- and SB-Prolog) to include implementations of OLDT (tabling) and HiLog terms. OLDT resolution is extremely useful for recursive query computation, allowing programs to terminate correctly in many cases where Prolog does not. HiLog supports a type of higher-order programming in which predicate symbols can be variable or structured. This allows unification to be performed on the predicate symbols themselves in addition to the arguments of the predicates. Of course, Tabling and HiLog can be used together. ports: Sun, Solaris, NeXT, Linux, 386 BSD, IRIX, HP-UX portability: Generally to 32-bit machines. contact: xsb-contact@cs.sunysb.edu updated: 1993/07/28 language: Prolog package: Modular SB-Prolog version: ? parts: interpreter author: ? location: ftp://ftp.dcs.ed.ac.uk/pub/dts/mod-prolog.tar.Z description: SB-Prolog version 3.1 plus modules restriction: GNU General Public License ports: Sparc contact: Brian Paxton <mprolog@dcs.ed.ac.uk> updated: ? language: ALF [prolog variant] package: alf (Algebraic Logic Functional programming language) version: ? parts: runtime, compiler(Warren Abstract Machine) author: Rudolf Opalla <opalla@julien.informatik.uni-dortmund.de> location: ftp://ftp.germany.eu.netpub/programming/languages/LogicFunctional description: ALF is a language which combines functional and logic programming techniques. The foundation of ALF is Horn clause logic with equality which consists of predicates and Horn clauses for logic programming, and functions and equations for functional programming. Since ALF is an integration of both programming paradigms, any functional expression can be used in a goal literal and arbitrary predicates can occur in conditions of equations. updated: 1992/10/08 language: CLP (Constraint Logic Programming language) [Prolog variant] package: CLP(R) version: 1.2 parts: runtime, compiler(byte-code), contstraint solver author: IBM location: mail to Joxan Jaffar <joxan@watson.ibm.com> description: CLP(R) is a constraint logic programming language with real-arithmetic constraints. The implementation contains a built-in constraint solver which deals with linear arithmetic and contains a mechanism for delaying nonlinear constraints until they become linear. Since CLP(R) subsumes PROLOG, the system is also usable as a general-purpose logic programming language. There are also powerful facilities for meta programming with constraints.

It supports base relations defined by facts (relations in the sense of relational databases) and derived relations defined by rules that specify how to compute new information from old information. Both base relations and the rules defining derived relations are stored on disk and are accessed as required during query evaluation. The rules defining derived relations are expressed in a Prolog-like language, which is also used for expressing queries. Aditi supports the full structured data capability of Prolog. Base relations can store arbitrarily nested terms, for example arbitrary length lists, and rules can directly manipulate such terms. Base relations can be indexed with B-trees or multi-level signature files. Users can access the system through a Motif-based query and database administration tool, or through a command line interface. There is also in interface that allows NU-Prolog programs to access Aditi in a transparent manner. Proper transaction processing is not supported in this release. ports: Sparc/SunOS4.1.2 Mips/Irix4.0 contact: <aditi@cs.mu.oz.au> updated: 1992/12/17 language: Lambda-Prolog package: Prolog/Mali (PM) version: ? 6/23/92 ? parts: compiler(->C), linker, libraries, runtime, documentation author: Pascal Brisset <brisset@irisa.fr> location: ftp://ftp.irisa.fr/pm/* description: Lambda-Prolog, a logic programming language defined by Miller, is an extension of Prolog where terms are simply typed $\lambda$terms and clauses are higher order hereditary Harrop formulas.
