Getting Listener Help
Amzi! Logic Explorer includes a help system that
contains information about the Listener.
After starting Logic Explorer
you can view this information by doing the following:
Take note of the other items listed in the IDE
These items contain further information that you will
find useful, including a list of Listener error messages,
a summary of system predicates,
and notes on the Logic Explorer text editor.
Open the help system by
clicking on the question mark button in the middle
of the menu bar at the top of the Amzi! Development Environment
window (or, click on the word "Help" at the top of the
window or, while depressing the [Alt] key, press the
"h" key on the keyboard, and pick the Contents option).
Click on the
Prolog User's Guide & Reference.
Then click on the IDE -- Interactive Development's Environment item.
For example, before starting the Listener, you will
normally have written, and saved a file containing your
Prolog program (database).
You can write your program using any text editor;
however, Logic Explorer includes an editor.
The availability of this editor facilitates making
changes or corrections to your program during its
development and testing.
For information on the Logic Explorer Editor,
click on the Edit Prolog Source Code item
in the IDE help window cited above.
Also, see the topic on
Starting the Editor
in another section of these notes.
