There are very tight limits set on the size and running time of programs that can be run in this way and the Toy Prolog interpreter only recognizes a subset of the prolog language, but it will be sufficient for our purposes and it has a nice syntax (the syntax of prolog varies a bit from flavor to flavor). If you get interested in prolog and want to do more with it, you will probably want to investigate a "real" prolog interpreter. I've been told that there is (or at least has been) a prolog interpreter on some of the unix machines on campus, but I am not sure what the path is. If you discover it, let me know.
