About Prolog

append([],    L,  L). 
append([H|T], L2, [H|L3]) :- append(T, L2, L3).

?- appendx([1,2],[3,4],X).
X = [1, 2, 3, 4].

?- appendx([1,2],X,[1,2,3,4]).
X = [3, 4].

?- appendx(X,[3,4],[1,2,3,4]).
X = [1, 2].

Prolog (short for "Programming Logic") is a declarative and logic based programming language developed in 1972 by Alain Colmerauer and Philippe Roussel. It has many applications, most notably in Artificial Intelligence for its pattern matching abilities over natural language parse trees.

Prolog is written in "facts" and "rules" that define logical formulas, similar to functional programs. Learning Prolog is a great way to improve skills with recursion, predicate logic, and constraint logic programming.

Exercism is a great website

The reviews are incredibly helpful because they help me see things that I missed, learn about new ways and sometimes interesting discussions that can add a fun twist to maybe a simple problem.

Relaxed. Encouraging. Supportive.
