I try to make a addition using is/2 and it always results in: ++Error[XSB/Runtime/P]: [Instantiation] ++Error[XSB]: [Runtime/C] Uninstantiated argument of evaluable function +/2 Goal: _Var + 2, probably as 2nd arg of is/2 Any pointer will greatly help me in completing my homework. prolog share|improve this question edited Apr 9 '12 at 10:24 asked Apr 9 '12 at 2:54 stackuser 7133712 add a comment| 1 Answer 1 active oldest votes up vote 1 down vote The problem is that when Prolog tries to calculate the value of Cost2, the value of F is still unknown and therefore an addition attempt leads to an instantiation error. You should ensure that F is a ground value when addition is reached. share|improve this answer answered Apr 9 '12 at 10:12 Alexander Serebrenik 2,9221727 But, When I try to assign F value directly to the function call instead of Cost2 is F+Cost1 , it picks up the F value correctly –stackuser Apr 9 '12 at 11:03 As I've explained if the value of F is known, the addition works fine. It reports an error only if the value of F is unknown. –Alexander Serebrenik Apr 9 '12 at 11:09 add a comment| Your Answer draft saved dr

History 2008-02-24: First e-mail report to WG17. 2009-07-17: Action item in Pasadena, 2009. 2009-10-29: Delivered error 22 to WG17 as N213. 2010-07-21: Resolution in Edinburgh: uninstantiation_error. 2010-07-26: N226. 2010-12-13: Superseded by DTC2. 2012-02-14: Published within ISO/IEC 13211-1:1995/Cor.2:2012. Changes under version control. Motivation In ISO/IEC 13211-1:1995 subclause 22.214.171.124 f, a goal open(File, Mode, Stream) has the following error defined: f) Stream is not a variable— type_error(variable, Stream) The argument Stream should be unified with error 22 instantiation a stream-term (7.10.2), more specifically (126.96.36.199): A standard-conforming program shall make no assumptions about the form of the stream-term, except that: a) It is a ground term. b) It is not an atom. c) It uniquely identifies a particular stream during the time that the stream is open. It is implementation dependent whether or not the pro- cessor uses the same stream-term to represent different source/sinks at different times. It is therefore possible for a standard conforming processor to reuse stream-terms for different mutually exclusive file operations. This can be observed in many processors such as SICStus 3, SWI, YAP. YAP version Yap-6.0.0 ?- open(t, write, S), close(S), open(t, write, S). ERROR!! TYPE ERROR- open(t,write,$stream(3)): expected unbound variable, got $stream(3) ?- open(t, write, S), close(S), open(t, write, S2), S == S2. S = S2 = '$stream'(3) ? ; no Whereas the first query produces the required type_error(variable,S), the second clearly shows that success could have been possible. In all other situations, type errors mean semantically failure.

Logic programming is a fascinating area in computer science, which held for years - and still does - the promise of freeing ourselves from programming based on the "Von Neumann" machine. In addition computer programming has long been for solid theoretical foundations. While conventional engineering, dealing mainly with "analogical complexity", developed over some hundred years a complete body of mathematical tools, no such toolset was available for "digital complexity". The only mathematical discipline which deals with digital complexity is logic and Prolog is certainly the operational tool which comes closest to the logical programming ideal. So, why does Prolog, despite nearly twenty years of development, still appear to many today to be more of a research or academic tool, rather than an industrial programming language? A few reasons may explain this: First, I think Prolog suffers from having been largely assimilated into - and thus followed the fate of - Artificial Intelligence. Much hype in the late 1980 created overexpectations and failed to deliver, and the counterreaction threw both AI and Prolog into relative obscurity. In a way, maybe this is a new chance for the Prolog co
