This new package contains SWI-Prolog, an open source interpreter
and compiler for Prolog.

This is the latest stable release 5.2.6.  This package is built
from the vanilla sources with only two additional `#ifndef __CYGWIN__'
in one file to get it built.  It requires Cygwin 1.5.x to run.

SWI-Prolog is an ISO compatible Prolog compiler.  It has a good
collection of built-in predicates, a large set of which it shares
with Edinburgh C-Prolog, Quintus Prolog and SICStus Prolog.  Among
its features are a very fast compiler, a Quintus-like module system,
library autoloading, garbage collection, atom garbage collection,
fast bidirectional C interface, true C++ interface, execution profiling
and many more.

The installed interpreter/compiler is called "pl".  `man pl' gives
you a first start.

See the SWI-Prolog home page at for more
