Compiles to disk a source file or a list of source
files using the default compiler flag values. The Logtalk source
file name extension (by default,
.lgt) can be omitted. Source file
paths can be absolute, relative to the current directory, or use library
notation. This predicate can also be used to compile Prolog source files
as Logtalk source code. When no recognized Logtalk or Prolog extension
is specified, the compiler tries first to append a Logtalk source file
extension and then a Prolog source file extension. If that fails, the
compiler tries to use the file name as-is.
When this predicate is called from the top-level, relative source file paths are resolved using the current working directory. When the calls are made from a source file, relative source file paths are resolved using the source file directory.
Note that only the errors related to problems in the predicate argument are listed below. This predicate fails when errors are found during compilation of a source file.
Modes and number of proofs¶
logtalk_compile(@source_file_name) - zero_or_one logtalk_compile(@list(source_file_name)) - zero_or_one
% compile to disk the "set" source file in the % current directory: | ?- logtalk_compile(set). % compile to disk the "tree" source file in the % "types" library directory: | ?- logtalk_load(types(tree)). % compile to disk the "listp" and "list" source % files in the current directory: | ?- logtalk_compile([listp, list]).
