Using an Initialization File

If you use certain customized features often, you might want to direct the system to load them every time you start up Prolog. You can do this by creating an initialization file called prolog.ini in your home directory. This file is loaded, if it exists, every time you start up Prolog. It may be a Prolog source file or a QOF file.

Please note: if you wish to start up Prolog or a Prolog saved program without loading your prolog.ini file you can use the +f for "fast start" option. That is,

          % prolog +f


          % myprog +f

will both start up Prolog without loading your prolog.ini file.
