Real 2.0

Real is a c-based interface for connecting R to Prolog. See the documentation at doc/html/real.html for more information. There is also a paper [1] and a user's guide in doc/guide.pdf.

Real works on current versions of SWI and YAP. As of version 1.1 there is support for using Real on SWI web-servers.


This software can be distributed under the MIT licence (see prolog/real.pl).


To install stable versions:


?- pack_intall( real ).

Yap install Yap itself with configure --with-R

See doc/guide.pdf for further details on stable versions.

Git access

To get the latest git version goto

git clone https://github.com/nicos-angelopoulos/real

To install developmental versions do:

SWI-Prolog (a)

Install last stable real with ?- pack_install( real ).

replace the pack/real directory with the clone from git repository and do

?- pack_rebuild( real ). % to force SWI to build from sources.

SWI-Prolog (b) clone real into pl-devel/packages/real add this to your build script export EXTRA_PKGS="real" build SWI from sources as per usual

Yap replace $YAP/packages/real with the development version you downloaded and rebuilt Yap with

configure --with-R



?- [pack('pack/real/examples/for_real')]. ?- for_real.

Yap ?- [examples/for_real]. ?- for_real.

Thanks, Samer Abdallah, for web support improvements.

Jan Wielemaker, for reimplenting the C-interface of the prototype for v1.0, for dots in identifiers (without flags) and web-support.
