A good discussion about Prolog 

A Prolog Introduction for Hackers
Most people try to solve problems in a step by step "do this and then do that" style. The declarative approach of the prolog gurus is alien to joe sixpack. Combine this fact with the fact that to solve any real-world problems in prolog involves interfacing with third party C and C++ libraries in a non-declarative fashion, is it any wonder that most programming gurus (Kent Beck for example) recommend Smalltalk-80 ?

-- "Never say what you can grunt. Never grunt what you can wink. Never wink what you can nod, never nod what you can shrug, and don't shrug when it ain't necessary" -Earl Long
