NAME ^

Prolog::Utility::FromPerl - utility function to convert perl data structures to prolog terms

VERSION ^

This document describes Prolog::Utility::FromPerl version 1.0.2

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Prolog::Utility::FromPerl;

    my $h = { foo => 1, bar => [2,3], baz => { a => 123 } };

    my $t = prolog_term('wtf',$h);

    say $t; # wtf(bar(2,3), baz(a(123)), foo(1))  

    my $sort_hash = { abc => 1, xyz => 2, '_SORT' => ['xyz','abc'] };

    my $sorted_term = prolog_term('somefact',$sort_hash);

    say $sorted_term; # somefact(xyz(2),abc(1))

    my $functor=prolog_term('foo',1,2,3,'bar');

    say $functor; # foo(1,2,3,'bar')

    my $chained_term = chain_terms(prolog_term('foo',1),prolog_term('bar',2));

    say $chained_term; # foo(1),bar(2).

    my $type=prolog_term('type','bigserial');

    my $name=prolog_term('name','id');

    my $nullstatus=prolog_term('status','NOT NULL');

    my $column=prolog_term('column',$name,$type,$nullstatus);

    my $tablename=prolog_term('name','deal_reservation');

    my $columnlist = prolog_list($column);

    my $columns = prolog_term('columns',$columnlist);

    my $table=prolog_term('table',$name,$columns);

    say $table;

DESCRIPTION ^

    This module provides utility functions for converting perl data 
    structures to prolog terms.  Its main use case is for generating 
    prolog facts that will be written to a file for consulting by prolog.

INTERFACE ^

prolog_term given a name, and a data structure, return a prolog term
printable_prolog prepare a prolog term for printing by appending a period at the end of the term.
chain_terms given an array or array reference of terms, join them by commas and append a final period to them.
prolog_hash given a hash or hash reference, convert each key value pair to a prolog term. The keys will be sorted by the sort function in order to maintain a consistent order due to hash randomization in perl 5.18. If you provide a key named _SORT with a value that is an array reference containing the other keys in the order you wish them to appear, they will be sorted by this order. The _SORT key itself will not appear in the output.
prolog_list given an array or array reference, convert to a prolog list

DIAGNOSTICS ^

unsupported reference

prolog_term can only convert scalar, array, or hash references
