|Creating a shell script|
With the introduction of PrologScript (see section 126.96.36.199), using shell scripts as explained in this section has become redundant for most applications.
Especially on Unix systems and not-too-large applications, writing a
shell script that simply loads your application and calls the entry
point is often a good choice. A skeleton for the script is given below,
followed by the Prolog code to obtain the program arguments. See library
#!/bin/sh base=<absolute-path-to-source> SWIPL=swipl exec $SWIPL "$base/load.pl" -- "$@"
:- use_module(library(main)). :- initialization(main,main). main(Argv) :- argv_options(Argv, Positional, Options), go(Positional, Options). go(Positional, Options) :- ...
On Windows systems, similar behaviour can be achieved by creating a
shortcut to Prolog, passing the proper options or writing a
