|Can I make an executable?|
Creating an executable is discussed in the reference manual (see the predicate qsave_program/2) and the -c commandline option. For local usage, there is often no reason to make a real executable.
SWI-Prolog supports PrologScript, which allows you to create an executable program very easily on Unix systems:
#!/usr/bin/pl -q -g main -s main :- current_prolog_flag(argv, Argv), append(_, [--|Av], Argv), !, main(Argv). main(Argv) :- ...
More information on using PrologScript as well as more compilation issues can be found in the Reference Manual.
If you are using Windows, you can write a .bat file or you can create a
shortcut to the
.pl file to load. For example:
/* File: run.pl Purpose: Load and run my program */ :- [load]. :- go.
