|Quintus Home > Portability|
Quintus Object Format (QOF) files contain a machine-independent representation of compiled Prolog. QOF files are portable not only among UNIX platforms, but also between UNIX and PC.
There are two ways to produce QOF files:
There are two ways to use QOF files:
The qpc compiler and qld link-editor can be called by standard tools, such as
make. This makes it easy to manage projects that contain both Prolog and non-Prolog
Cross-Development and Delivery (Windows)
Quintus Prolog supports development and console based delivery under Windows 98/ME/NT/2000/XP.
Stand-alone programs that contain Prolog code are generated using Microsoft Visual C++ version 5 or later. However, Visual C++ is not required to run the Quintus Prolog development system. DLLs may be dynamically loaded directly into the development system.
The foreign interface supports DLLs created by any C/C++ compiler. Interrupts
and DLLs are fully supported under Windows 98/ME/NT/2000/XP. Quintus Prolog's TCP package
is directly supported under Windows 98/ME/NT/2000/XP.
