I’m trying to revive the Prolog code here: http://www.vilnergoy.org/nsm/nsm-dalia.html
At times I feel more like I’m exhuming it than reviving it. Among other problems, it appears that name/2, deprecated but still supported, is not longer as forgiving. Apparently at one time, SWI Prolog name/2 could manage this
name([["./lang_bin/", 101, 110, 103 | “-”], 101 | “bin.pl”], Filename)
doing all the list flattening, numeric ASCII code conversion and string-handling without breaking a sweat. Now it just wants a list of characters. I’ve substituted a wrapper, xName/2, to perform the predigestion name/2 apparently used to do. It can handle some cases already, but I’m not done yet. It doesn’t help that my skills with Prolog (never stellar) are now very rusty.
I suspect this isn’t the only change in SWI Prolog I’ll need to accommodate in order to get NSM DALIA up to date. Is there a list of what’s changed over the last decade?
