PHP & Prolog

Posted by Garrie (Garrie), 11 May 2004
Is it possible to use Prolog (or some other similar language) with PHP?
This is more out of interest rather than for a specific problem.

You could always use shell_exec or the backtick operator in PHP to run a program in Prolog (or in any other language). proc_open (from PHP 4.3.0 onwards) or popen might also be alternatives.  I'm not sure whether that's too "loose coupled" from PHP for what you were asking.

I did a bit of a search (and found LOTS of lists of languages that included both PHP and Prolog!) but I did came up with
which might be worth further research - personally, I don't know alice.
