Print graphs nodes

Print graphs nodes

Print graphs nodes

I am newie in Prolog, could you please someone help me?
At the entry is given a chart with list of their edges. Write a program in Prolog, which prints a list of all nodes. / / also with inputs for command line
oh (0.1).
oh (0.2).
oh (2.3).
oh (2.4).
oh (3.4).
oh (4.5).

So outputs should be just 0,1,2,3,4,5

Thanks for any advice

RE: Print graphs nodes

First of all, I believe your oh predicate takes 2 parameters, like in: oh(0, 1).

With your oh(0.1) it seems as if it takes only 1 parameter, which is a float number.

So, the following algorithm will make clauses like node(0), node(1), node(2), ... appear in your knowledge base. Then, if you want to get all the graph nodes, you should do something like that:

findall(X, node(X), L) ... and L will be a list with all values for X that match the node predicate.

So, here is the entire code:

:- dynamic(node/1).
oh(0, 1).
oh(0, 2).
oh(2, 3).
oh(2, 4).
oh(3, 4).
oh(4, 5).

compute_nodes :-
  oh(A, B),

create_node(X) :-

find_nodes(L) :-
    findall(X, node(X), L).

compute_nodes always fails because the final 'fail' ... so that means in find_nodes we have to call the negation of compute_nodes so that it actually succeeds

RE: Print graphs nodes

ah, to launch everything, just call:


and you will get:

L = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]

RE: Print graphs nodes

[0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5] ... sorry

RE: Print graphs nodes

Thank you a lot for your answer.

You right, oh predicate takes 2 parameters, like in: oh(0, 1).

I put the code into SWI-Prolog and wanted compile - it wrote:

% Scanning references for 1 possibly undefined predicates

and could you please send me whats is doing?

1) :- dynamic(node/1).
2) \+

Thank you

RE: Print graphs nodes

You have help in SWI-Prolog : Help/Online manual... from the editor.
