I’m using: SWI-Prolog version 8.0.3
I live in France. I have made initiation to code in BASIC in early 80’s, and I made my life after then.
It is not simple to learn Prolog 3 with the pdf, as there are some terms that are not explained, as in OCaml, there were not explaination about, for example, the “->” symbol.
I have so understood the basis of the language, as I have understood OCaml, but one process which blocked me for completing the software I was generating, and of course, the difficulties to find an efficient coding platform. For the OCaml, I had a *.pdf about 600 pages in english, and it was quite difficult, but I passed reading. Here now, for Prolog, the pdf about P3 is in french language, but there are some defaults, as concepts explained a hundred pages after, in order to understand them.
So my question is simple: for someone who starts coding, as me, who has just some notions and concepts about these types of languages, OCaml, Java, BASIC-DOS, who has read thousands of pages of explicative notices, and visit numerous sites as developpez.com, written thousands of pages about coding, when the missing part to understand really how to code is some basic notions (as the “->” I told you before), and the missing of explainations about actual versions of coding relatively to this platform or this one, now Prolog 8 and not Prolog 3, knowing reading hundreds of pages does not burry me, can you indicate me some directories in the internet adresses, pages you should have, relatively to these notions and the actual version 8 of Prolog?
If I can resume my question, I am searching to an explicative pdf about the 8 version of Prolog, or maybe the actualizations of Prolog didacticial version after version, which should make a complete pdf from this one about the version 3, with additive for the version 4, additive for the version 5, and so on, and of course, some lexical about basis of the syntax and symbols.
As I did not find this, maybe have you some answers soon written or to tell me here?
Even if I am a french man, it is not a problem to read in english, but a limit about current american expressions I should not know.
