2018 arXiv   pre-print
We have designed and implemented a type-preserving compiler for a simply-typed dialect of Prolog we call T-Prolog.  ...  The crux of our approach is a new certifying abstract machine which we call the Typed Warren Abstract Machine (TWAM).  ...  In this work, we develop the Typed Warren Abstract Machine (TWAM), a dependently-typed certifying abstract machine suitable as a compilation target for certifying compilers.  ...

Lightweight compilation of (C)LP to JavaScript

2012 Theory and Practice of Logic Programming  
We demonstrate the maturity of the compiler by testing it with complex code such as a CLP(FD) library written in Prolog with attributed variables.  ...  We present an overview of the compilation process and a detailed description of the run-time system, including the support for modular compilation into separate JavaScript code.  ...  We made a strong effort to preserve source compatibility with existing Prolog code, and declaring special libraries and dialectic changes explicitly.  ...

2022 arXiv   pre-print
Both logic programming in general, and Prolog in particular, have a long and fascinating history, intermingled with that of many disciplines they inherited from or catalyzed.  ...  Finally, we perform a SWOT analysis in order to better identify the potential of Prolog, and propose future directions along which Prolog might continue to add useful features, interfaces, libraries, and  ...  The authors also endorse Paul McJones' efforts to maintain a historical archive on Prolog, at, and thank all contributors.  ...
