Bousi~Prolog Manual

The current version of the Bousi∼Prolog manual is under construction.

At the present time we provide the manual of BPL version 2.0 by clicking:

Bousi∼Prolog ver. 2.0: Implementation, User Manual and Applications

As the title of the document specifies it is more than a simple user manual, since it gives insights on the theory supporting this system and the techniques we used to implement it.

Program Examples

Bousi∼Prolog may contribute to resolve several problems extracted from different application areas, where it is mandatory to deal with vagueness and uncertain knowledge. The following link contains a set of program examples:

A collection of sample programs

Most of them were described in a paper presented at the 2010 International Conference on Fuzzy Computation.

bpl-2.01-win32-installer.zip

BPL version 1.07

The BPL system version1.07 was a prototype, written on top of SWI-Prolog. Source code was translated (compiled) into an intermediate Prolog code representation which was called “TPL code” (Translated BPL code). Then, following standard techniques, a meta-interpreter executed the TPL code according to the weak SLD resolution principle.

This is and old version of the BPL system and  it can not deal with the new features of  SWI-Prolog ver. 7.6.4.

  1. Do you have a build for MacOS Mojave?
    The build for High Sierra does not work on Mojave:
    MacBook-Pro:bpl-3.2-highsierra-executable$ ./bpl
    dyld: Library not loaded: /usr/lib/system/libsystem_network.dylib
    Referenced from: bpl-3.2-highsierra-executable/lib/libSystem.B.dylib
    Reason: image not found

    Thank you!

    1. Hi.

      We have not yet taken that step of migrating to the new version of the MacOS system, Mojave. We hope to do it in the near future.

      We regret the problems you have had in your installation.

      However, you can appreciate the characteristics of our language using the online version: https://dectau.uclm.es:8443

  2. I discover Bousi-Prolog which seems full of promises !

    Apparently the Ubuntu executable packages proposed for version 3.5 are in fact at version 3.4. Is it possible to fix this point or should I compile and install the source version 3.5 of the software ?.

    Windows executable version is well the 3.5.

    1. We apologize for any inconvenience we may have caused. Now the problem you point out is solved.

      Note that we have just released a new version 3.5.1 which adds a minimal but important enhancement: checking for cycles in WordNet hierarchies to avoid non-termination.

      1. Thanks for the new version 3.5.1. Adter a first attempt to use it I have these two observations :

        1- With the bpl-3.5.1-ubuntu64-executable version used on Ubuntu 20.04.1 I get the following error message :
        “./bousi: error while loading shared libraries: libtinfo.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

        even though the package libtinfo-dev is properly installed on the system.

        2-, With the bpl-3.5.1-unix-installer version, I manage to compile the program and to run a first example. Nevertheless the command line edition has no history functions as if libedit (Editline library) was not operational even though the package libeditline-dev is properly installed on the Ubuntu 20.04.1 system.

        1. The bpl-3.5.1-ubuntu64-executable version needs to have a LD_LIBRARY_PATH properly defined to work. To do so the bpl command can be modified as follows :

          #!/bin/bash
          #export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=.:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
          export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=./
          ./bousi

          Nevertheless, as for the locally builded version, the command line edition history is not operational.

  3. I tried to compile/install Bousi-Prolog 3.5 but it fails to do so and complains that it cannot find SWI-Prolog. However this software is well installed with the version 8.1.31 and can be launched with the command swipl.

  4. With respect to point 2: remove comments of both all the calls to the history predicates, and the predicates themselves (look for “history” in bplShell.pl: you will find load_history/0, save_history/0, history_filename/1, max_history_commands/1 and their calls).
