  From  The  Free  On-line  Dictionary  of  Computing  (13  Mar  01)  [foldoc]: 
    Programming  in  Logic  or  (French)  Programmation 
  en  Logique  The  first  of  the  huge  family  of  {logic 
  programming}  languages. 
  Prolog  was  invented  by  Alain  Colmerauer  and  Phillipe  Roussel 
  at  the  University  of  Aix-Marseille  in  1971.  It  was  first 
  implemented  1972  in  {ALGOL-W}.  It  was  designed  originally  for 
  {natural-language  processing}  but  has  become  one  of  the  most 
  widely  used  languages  for  {artificial  intelligence}. 
  It  is  based  on  {LUSH}  (or  {SLD})  {resolution}  {theorem 
  proving}  and  {unification}.  The  first  versions  had  no 
  user-defined  functions  and  no  control  structure  other  than  the 
  built-in  {depth-first  search}  with  {backtracking}.  Early 
  collaboration  between  Marseille  and  Robert  Kowalski  at 
  {University  of  Edinburgh}  continued  until  about  1975. 
  Early  implementations  included  {C-Prolog},  {ESLPDPRO}, 
  {Frolic},  {LM-Prolog},  {Open  Prolog},  {SB-Prolog},  {UPMAIL 
  Tricia  Prolog}.  In  1998,  the  most  common  Prologs  in  use  are 
  {Quintus  Prolog},  {SICSTUS  Prolog},  {LPA  Prolog},  {SWI 
  Prolog},  {AMZI  Prolog},  {SNI  Prolog}.
