Definitions for "Prolog"
A declarative higher-level programming language in which instructions are written not as explicit procedural data-manipulation commands, but as logical statements. The language has built-in resolution procedures for logical inference.
(n.) a language for logic programming.
a computer language designed in Europe to support natural language processing
The part of a method's code that is executed when the method starts and during which the fixed part of the stack frame is not yet completely initialized. The code manager does not permit a garbage collection to occur during a method prolog and it must take extra care during stack unwinding for methods that are executing their prolog. The prolog is responsible for constructing the local stack frame, saving the callee-saved registers and initializing the untracked local variables.
a handful of machine instructions that prepare the processor to execute a new function
Extraneous bytes at the beginning of a signal file that are not to be read as samples. Signal files created using the DB library do not contain prologs, but signal files created using other means may contain prologs. To read such a signal file using the DB library, provided that the sample data is in a supported format, it is sufficient to record the length of the prolog (in bytes) in the appropriate locations in a `header' file that names the signal file. If you need to create such a `header' file, refer to the description of the byte offset field in header(5) (the specification of the `header' file format in the ECG Database Applications Guide, or see section dbsetstart.
computed log analysis system. Prolog computer-processed interpretations are designed to be performed at the well site. Prolog is a mark of Dresser Atlas.
