PLDB is now part of core.logic!
I highly recommend you use the version of pldb in core.logic instead of this library!
A persistent core.logic database. The goal of pldb is to provide core.logic fact/relation mechanism that doesn't use mutable namespace references. This makes it easier to use core.logic in multi-threaded environments like web applications.
Relations are defined in the same way as core.logic relations. These relations are bound to the namespace they are defined in, as in core.logic.
(pldb/db-rel man p) (pldb/db-rel woman p) (pldb/db-rel likes p1 p2) (pldb/db-rel fun p)
Facts are persistent values. They can be created into a new empty db.
(def facts (pldb/db [man 'Bob] [man 'John] [man 'Ricky] [woman 'Mary] [woman 'Martha] [woman 'Lucy] [likes 'Bob 'Mary] [likes 'John 'Martha] [likes 'Ricky 'Lucy]))
Or they can extend a given base database using db-fact.
(def facts (-> pldb/empty-db (pldb/db-fact man 'Bob) (pldb/db-fact man 'John) (pldb/db-fact man 'Ricky) (pldb/db-fact woman 'Mary) (pldb/db-fact woman 'Martha) (pldb/db-fact woman 'Lucy) (pldb/db-fact likes 'Bob 'Mary) (pldb/db-fact likes 'John 'Martha) (pldb/db-fact likes 'Ricky 'Lucy)))
To retract a fact, create a new database with the fact retracted.
(def facts-retracted (-> facts (pldb/db-retraction likes 'Bob 'Mary))
To run a query with a given database, use with-db.
(pldb/with-db facts (doall (run* [q] (fresh [x y] (likes x y) (fun y) (== q [x y])))))
To run a query across multiple databases, use with-dbs.
(pldb/with-dbs [facts1 facts2 facts3] (doall (run* [q] (fresh [x y] (likes x y) (fun y) (== q [x y])))))
