I had heard about prolog for years, but, it was not taught at the university I went to. But, as other have mentioned, I have always wondered about it, hearing whispers here and there. The recent resurgance of interest came from working with Erlang. Erlangs syntax is from Prolog (because it was prototyped in Prolog first) I am reading the basic intro text: https://www.amazon.ca/Programming-Prolog-Using-ISO-Standard/.... which is nice. All I can say is, its very strange and interesting.



Although prototyped in Prolog, Erlang borrowed heavily from an obscure language called Strand.

I have a copy of the book, and the code samples are really similar to Erlang.
