Re: prolog like search



Hi Nameless,

try this:

entities={william,henry,diana,charles};

Sonof[_,_]=False;

Sonof[william,diana]=True;

Sonof[william,charles]=True;

Sonof[henry,diana]=True;

Sonof[henry,charles]=True;

Sonof[_,_]=False;



Married[a_,b_]:=Or@@(Sonof[#,a]&&Sonof[#,b]&&(a=!=b)&/@ entities);

PrologSearch[fun_,ent_]:=Cases[Outer[{fun[#1,#2],fun,{#1,#2}}&, 

ent,ent],{True,x__}:>{x},{2}];



PrologSearch[Married, entities]



hope this helps, Daniel
