About

Logtalk is a declarative object-oriented logic programming language that extends and leverages the Prolog language with a feature set suitable for programming in the large. Logtalk supports modern code encapsulation and code reuse mechanisms without compromising the declarative programming features of Prolog.

Logtalk is implemented as a trans-compiler in highly portable code and can use most modern and standards compliant Prolog implementations as a backend compiler.

As a multi-paradigm language, Logtalk includes support for both prototypes and classes, protocols (interfaces), categories (components and hot-patching), event-driven programming, coinduction, lambda expressions, and high-level multi-threading programming. Logtalk uses standard Prolog syntax with the addition of some operators and directives for a smooth learning path.

Logtalk is distributed under a commercial friendly license and includes full documentation, portable libraries, portable developer tools, and a large number of programming examples to help get you started.

Logtalk website

The latest stable release of the Logtalk is always available at the URL:

https://logtalk.org/

At this address you can also find additional documentation and information about Logtalk.

Installation

Logtalk can be installed either from sources by running a couple of shell scripts or by using an installer for your operating system. For manual installation, see the INSTALL.md file for detailed instructions.

See the user manual for a description of the source files organization and for using instructions (to read the user manual open the index file in a web browser).

If you are upgrading from a previous Logtalk version, please check the UPGRADING.md file for instructions on how to upgrade your programs or your custom adapter files to run under this new version.

Customization

The CUSTOMIZE.md file provides detailed instructions for customizing the Logtalk installation and working environment.

Running

The QUICK_START.md file provides quick instructions for those of you in a hurry to run Logtalk, provided that your favorite Prolog compiler is supported and installed.

Documentation

A quick and highly recommended introduction for users comfortable with Prolog and with general knowledge about object-oriented programming is available at the Learn X in Y minutes website.

The reference and user manuals are provided in XHTML and PDF formats and can be found in the manuals directory. They are also available online at:

https://logtalk.org/manuals/index.html

The RELEASE_NOTES.md file contains descriptions of all Logtalk updates since the first public version. Check it carefully if you have been using a previous Logtalk version.

The API documentation for the core, library, tools, and contributions entities is provided in XHTML format and can be found in the docs directory and also available online at:

https://logtalk.org/library/index.html

Most directories include NOTES.md or NOTES.txt documentation files.

On POSIX systems, there's also a man page for most shell scripts. A list of these scripts can be generated using the apropos logtalk command. HTML versions of the man pages are also available at the Logtalk website.

Additional useful information is available in the official repository wiki at GitHub.
