Starting the Listener

To start the Listener, after starting Logic Explorer, do the following:
  1. Click on the word "Listener" at the top of the Amzi! Development Environment window (or, while depressing the [Alt] key, press the letter "l" key).
  2. Click on the word "start" in the menu that opens (or, press the [Enter] or [Return] key since, at this point, only the "start" option is available).
The Listener window will open and the following lines of text will be displayed:

The two characters "?-" in the last line comprise the "Listener prompt." The Listener displays this prompt, with the cursor one space to the right, whenever it is waiting for you to type a query (or claim).
