Executing PASCAL programs on a PROLOG architecture

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The decision by the Japanese to buid their Fifth Generation Computer Project around systems based on logic programming rather than on conventional imperative languages is a significant departure from the style of computers developed in the past. The effect which this might have on computer systems in the future had led to concern about what might happen to the large base of existing software which is implemented in imperative languages. To allay fears on this score an investigation has been conducted into the feasibility of translating conventional languages like PASCAL into PROLOG. The results of this study are reported. © 1987.
