Consult problems


#1

I’m using: SWI-Prolog version 8.1.3 the lates for windows 10 x64

I try consult simply programm or just empty file, anything.
Expected result - to have green line like (…/1.pl) compiled 0.0sec ect…
Actual - nothing happend
My simple programm is compiled by SWI Prolog text editor without any bugs.

But what I’m getting is: I want to consult my programm but i cant. After press button “consult” and select file.pl nothing happens. The main screen continue to work without any problems.

After open a file (consult/ select file/ press ok)


My code looks like this:

mother_child(trude, sally).

father_child(tom, sally).
father_child(tom, erica).
father_child(mike, tom).

sibling(X, Y)     :- parent_child(Z, X), parent_child(Z, Y).

parent_child(X, Y) :- father_child(X, Y).
parent_child(X, Y) :- mother_child(X, Y).

Ive read more about prolog: its my first expirience. So, the swi works correctly, without green message


#3

At some point the consult message was (by default) removed as it is mostly noisy when loading code from the command line using

?- [file].

Thanks for sending this message. I’ll reenable verbose loading when loading using the menu. As you noticed though, the files are loaded anyway.


#4

Fixed with https://github.com/SWI-Prolog/swipl-devel/commit/ce058c282161e6d81ce9157ae2b75b296a64e155.

Probably not important enough as you now know, but you can download nightly builds from http://www.swi-prolog.org/download/daily/bin/ Of course, these are not always an improvement compared to the last release :slight_smile:
