PLOGHELP ARITHMETIC Kathryn Seifert July 1986 Overview of HELP files dealing with operations on numbers. Keywords: overview, arithmetic, mathematics, operators, symbols, numbers CONTENTS - (Use g to access sections) -- DOCUMENTATION OF RELEVANT PREDICATES, OPERATORS, AND LIBRARY PROGRAMS -- RELATED DOCUMENTATION There are several built in Prolog predicates and operators and online library packages for performing operations on numbers. The HELP files which cover these individually are listed below. -- DOCUMENTATION OF RELEVANT PREDICATES, OPERATORS, AND LIBRARY PROGRAMS PLOGHELP * ARE Library package for binding the result(s) of an expression to a variable PLOGHELP * BITWISE Describes operators for manipulating numbers as strings of bits PLOGHELP * DIV Operator returning the integer result of the division of two integers PLOGHELP * DIVIDE Operator which divides one number by another PLOGHELP * EQUAL Describes operators for performing the "equals" comparison PLOGHELP * FLOAT Predicate which tests whether its argument is a floating point number PLOGHELP * GREATERTHAN Describes operators for performing the "greater than" comparison PLOGHELP * INTEGER Predicate which tests whether its argument is an integer PLOGHELP * IS Operator which binds a variable to the result of an expression PLOGHELP * LESSTHAN Describes operators for performing the "less than" comparison PLOGHELP * MINUS Operator for subtracting one number from another PLOGHELP * MOD Operator returning the remainder after the division of two integers PLOGHELP * PLUS Operator for adding one number to another PLOGHELP * TIMES Operator for multiplying one number with another -- OTHER RELATED DOCUMENTATION ---------------------------------------- REF * DATA Information about data types in POPLOG, including numbers REF * NUMBERS More detailed information about types of numbers in POPLOG and the procedures available for creating and manipulating them. PLOGHELP * OPERATORS Operator declarations made when the Prolog system is loaded PLOGHELP * SYMBOLS Lists the symbols used as numeric and logical operators in Prolog HELP * NUMBERS Overview of POP-11 HELP files dealing with numbers and arithmetic HELP * MATH Review of mathematical operations and procedures in POP-11 REF * EFFICIENCY Information on efficiency REF * FASTPROCS Describes fast procedures for system programmers. --- C.all/plog/help/arithmetic ----------------------------------------- --- Copyright University of Sussex 1988.
