Pack bddem -- README.md


bddem is a library for manipulating Binary Decision Diagrams in SWI-Prolog (http://www.swi-prolog.org/).

It contains programs for building BDDs, for computing probabilities and for performing Expectation Maximization.

It is used by various SWI-Prolog packs:




This is an SWI-Prolog pack.

It can be installed with pack_install/1

$ swipl
?- pack_install(bddem).

The pack uses a foreign library and contains the library binaries for 32 and 64 bits Linux, MacOs and 64 bits Windows. If you want to recompile the foreign library you can use

?- pack_rebuild(bddem).

On 32 and 64 bits Linux this should work out of the box. On 64 bits Windows the library must be rebuilt by hand. The procedure for building it using MSYS2 can be found at the bottom of this document.

Testing the installation

$ swipl
?- use_module(library(bddem_test)).
?- run_tests.

Building under Windows using MSYS2

Install MSYS2 from https://www.msys2.org/ First run ?- pack_rebuild(bddem). This typically fails but produces the file buildenv.sh in the root folder. Modify this file by commenting the line defining the PATH variable in this way

$ source buildenv.sh

Compile with

$ ./configure
$ make
$ make install
