[erlang-questions] idea: DB in Prolog application in Erlang
Fri Nov 30 10:45:39 CET 2007
A long time ago Erlang started as a extension to Prolog ...
Now Prolog is a wonderful language for querying databases in -
<<forget this SQL stuff it's horrendously verbose compared to Prolog queries>>
So why when we talk about Erlang + an external data base do we
automatically reach for an SQL data base?
I haven't been actively following the Prolog world, so here's my questions:
Are there any prolog data bases with ACID properties.
I'd like something that is
- open source
- resident (is runs like mySQL as a resident task on my machine)
- can handle large amounts of data (meaning I could store several
giga facts in the DB)
- has ACID properties
Given the similarity between Erlang and Prolog data structures
integration between the two languages
could be very nice.
Embedded prolog queries in Erlang would be *very* nice, just
interpreting erlang variables
as prolog logical variables.
