Similarly, it is asked, what is a rule in Prolog?
So far we haven't really been doing any programming, just defining objects and their properties. The first step to programming in prolog is the use of rules. With rules we state that a predicate is true, provided that other predicates are true. A rule looks like this: a :- b, c, d.
Also Know, what are domains predicates and clauses in Prolog? The predicates section of the program simply lists each predicate, showing the types (domains) of its arguments. Although the clauses section is the heart of your program, Visual Prolog gets much of its efficiency from the fact that you also declare the types of objects (arguments) that your facts and rules refer to.
Similarly, it is asked, how do you define a predicate?
The predicate of a sentence is the part that modifies the subject in some way. Because the subject is the person, place, or thing that a sentence is about, the predicate must contain a verb explaining what the subject does and can also include a modifier.
