Developed by students of the Russian State University for Humanities (3-rd grade), Moscow. Intelligent Systems Department.


To run the program please make the steps as follows:

  • Create the new project in Visual Prolog 7.2 with the User Interface strategy Console
  • In the created project replace the entire content of the file "main.pro" by the code shown below
  • While building the project answer "Add All", when any dialog with proposals to include any packages to the project appears
