Prolog and Smalltalk
So, awhile back I had an idea to integrate Prolog (which I didn't know then, but know a little now) and Smalltalk. I thought it might be a nice fit to put my rules in a Prolog form and have it integrated into Smalltalk. Well, first I find out that someone wrote exactly this in Squeak. Next, I find that it's well integrated into Smalltalk/X! WOW! My point with this blog is that there is a lot of cool things happening out there in the Smalltalk sphere and a lot of developers writing tons of great software. It's also nifty to know that Smalltalk is malliable to different paradigms (the Lisp dudes make a big deal of this too) and is easy to implement. I think I might be learning Prolog from one of the Smalltalk environments since it is so easy to debug. And plus, it would be nice to learn the way it all works.

Prolog/V is now running in Squeak again (3.9) as is BackTalk; there is always SOUL for VisualWorks
