Remarks

  • Implementation: The backend Prolog compiler built-in random generator is only used for the basic random/1, get_seed/1, and set_seed/1 predicates.

  • Portability: B-Prolog, CxProlog, ECLiPSe, JIProlog, Lean Prolog, Qu-Prolog, Quintus Prolog do not provide implementations for the get_seed/1 and set_seed/1 predicates and calling these predicates simply succeed without performing any action.
