I'm TAing a LISP/Prolog course at the moment, and
because I didn't learn Prolog particularly well when
I took the course as a student, I volunteered to
write the sample solutions for the Prolog assignments.
In the year or so between taking the course and TAing
it, I learned Perl, and found out about regexes.
I now have an excellent mental model of Prolog's
backtracking system. (Yeah, I suppose this is a
glorified "Me, too!" post.) I expect this to make
(re)learning Prolog much easier, and I expect
(re)learning Prolog to drastically improve my regex
And it looks like Perl 6 will have much better
support for logical programming, which makes the
exercise even more worthwhile.
