I am not trying to guess what the OP wanted, but I know what I would
like. I'll try to specify it.
I have a web page
not that it matters) which is written in php, and uses SQL to act as a
front end to a database. It works, but I find it a pain updating and
maintaining it. This is not because there's anything wrong with php or
SQL, it's just they (and particularly SQL) are new to me and I am not
finding it easy to get to grips with them.
What I would like is to keep these data in Prolog instead. I learned
Prolog decades ago, and feel comfortable with it.
I know that a database is designed for keeping data in, and it can cope
with one user updating it while another accesses it, and it has in-built
integrity checking and indexing and stuff. And Prolog is not so good at
these things. But I don't need any of that. This is a small database
with very light usage. What I want is to be able to update it by typing
in a few more Prolog clauses, and uploading the Prolog file. I have
access to an ISP (Pair) who let me run binaries on their server. So
what I want is some Prolog interpreter that I can run on their server,
and a way of calling it from inside a web page, like I call SQL.
Yes, I _know_ the right answer is "pull yourself together and go on an
SQL course". But I would like to see a Prolog solution.
