Computing Dictionary

A strongly typed logic programming language with numerical constraint-solving over the natural numbers, developed by Paul Voda <voda@voda.ii.fmph.uniba.sk> at ubc in 1988. Trilogy is syntactically a blend of prolog, lisp, and pascal. It contains three types of clauses: predicates (backtracking but no assignable variables), procedures (if-then-else but no backtracking; assignable variables), and subroutines (like procedures, but with input and system calls; callable only from top level or from other subroutines).

Development of Trilogy I stopped in 1991. Trilogy II, developed by Paul Voda 1988-92, was a declarative general purpose programming language, used for teaching and to write cl.
