tabling.pl -- Tabled execution (SLG WAM)
PublicShow source

This library handled tabled execution of predicates using the characteristics if the SLG WAM. The required suspension is realised using delimited continuations implemented by reset/3 and shift/1. The table space and work lists are part of the SWI-Prolog core.

Source table(+PredicateIndicators)
Prepare the given PredicateIndicators for tabling. Can only be used as a directive. The example below prepares the predicate edge/2 and the non-terminal statement//1 for tabled execution.
:- table edge/2, statement//1.

In addition to using predicate indicators, a predicate can be declared for mode directed tabling using a term where each argument declares the intended mode. For example:

:- table connection(_,_,min).

Mode directed tabling is discussed in the general introduction section about tabling.

Source start_tabling(+Variant, +Implementation)
Execute Implementation using tabling. This predicate should not be called directly. The table/1 directive causes a predicate to be translated into a renamed implementation and a wrapper that involves this predicate.
Compatibility
- This interface may change or disappear without notice from future versions.
Source abolish_all_tables
Remove all tables. This is normally used to free up the space or recompute the result after predicates on which the result for some tabled predicates depend.
Errors
- permission_error(abolish, table, all) if tabling is in progress.
Source abolish_table_subgoals(:Subgoal) is det
Abolish all tables that unify with SubGoal.
Source current_table(:Variant, -Trie) is nondet
True when Trie is the answer table for Variant.
Source prolog:rename_predicate(:Head0, :Head) is semidet[multifile]
Hook into term_expansion for post processing renaming of the generated predicate.
Source sandbox:safe_directive(+Directive) is semidet[multifile]
Allow tabling directives that affect locally defined predicates.
