Does anybody know where I can find a Prolog implementation for the Acorn Archimedes?
In no particular order:
SWI-Prolog (ported by Steffan Corley).
Bin-Prolog 3.n (ported by me after Paul Tarau rather nicely let me peer at the source). Its commerciakl use is restricted, but this does not apply to academic / research use.
HU-Prolog - an older system.
These three should be FTPable from micros.hensa.ac.uk
There's a commercial product called Keylink Prolog, costing about 70 pounds, but it lacks DCGs. However, the manual is good.
SWI is probably the package to go for if you want builtin help and other goodies. BinProlog is very, very quick, although it has slightly less debugging facilties, and can be terse for beginners. SWI can also handle source that's been written for Bim, Quintus, and similar.
