Yes Prolog is quite a useful language. The concept of 'backtracking' is
very powerful. In fact, I think (not verified) many important concepts
originated in Prolog and Lisp, two of the oldest languages. It also
handles data and meta-data structures very nicely.
I had used a variant of XML in Prolog (which I used to call 'proXML')
that overcame many of the problems that Carl had pointed out in XML.
Anyway, I am probably digressing ...
I find Rebol also a very good language to work with. I think it can also
handle data+code together (data turning into code, code back into data)
which can be very useful. Now if someone has figured out a way to do
backtracking in Rebol and do things like 'findall' ( a predicate in most
Prolog to collect data together)... well that would be really wonderful.
