# Language of the Month for September 2022: Prolog

In accordance with our meta agreement, since one candidate received more votes than the others, we have a new featured language! Throughout September 2022, our Language of the Month will be:

# Prolog

## What's a Language of the Month?

See the meta post for nominations. In short, during September, those who wish to participate should learn (at least the basics of) Prolog, and use it to solve challenges. Participation is completely optional, but is anticipated to be fun!

Prolog or PROgramming in LOGics is a logical and declarative programming language. It is one major example of the fourth generation language that supports the declarative programming paradigm. This is particularly suitable for programs that involve symbolic or non-numeric computation. This is the main reason to use Prolog as the programming language in Artificial Intelligence, where symbol manipulation and inference manipulation are the fundamental tasks.

In Prolog, we need not mention the way how one problem can be solved, we just need to mention what the problem is, so that Prolog automatically solves it. However, in Prolog we are supposed to give clues as the solution method.

## Bounty

I, Steffan, will offer a +100 bounty for any user's 5th Prolog answer in September.
I, user, will try to offer a n*100 bounty for any user's nth Prolog answer in September.

• @TKirishima I actually nominated it a few months ago, before weekgolf even existed lol Sep 1 at 22:09
• Most of the people here probably don't even know week.golf exists, to be honest. It was just a coincidence.
