Sicstus Prolog

SICStus Prolog is a commercially distributed Prolog compiler and development system. The software tool offers an extensive range of built-in predicates, including CLP(FD), libraries for interfacing to foreign functions, and a powerful meta-interpreter. SICStus also supports modules for structuring large applications and includes several development tools such as a top-level shell, debugger, profiler and an optimized compiler capable of producing standalone executables. Its long-established reputation in the Prolog community makes it popular both academically and industrially for developing knowledge-based systems, natural language processing applications, AI algorithms and other areas involving symbolic computation.
