The Quintus User Interface (QUI) is a Motif-based window interface to the Quintus Prolog Development System. It includes a query interpreter window with history menu, a source linked debugger, a help window for accessing the on-line manuals and an edit window as well as an interface to the GNU Emacs editor.
Any argument that does not match options
described in this section and does not start with a

+z option. Double pluses will be translated into a single plus, so the
