- Compatibility
- YAP, SICStus, Quintus. Not all versions of this library define exactly the same set of predicates, but defined predicates are compatible.

Compatibility library for term manipulation predicates. Most predicates in this library are provided as SWI-Prolog built-ins.

- [det]
**term_size**(`@Term, -Size`) - True if
`Size`is the size in*cells*occupied by`Term`on the global (term) stack. A*cell*is 4 bytes on 32-bit machines and 8 bytes on 64-bit machines. The calculation does take*sharing*into account. For example:?- A = a(1,2,3), term_size(A,S). S = 4. ?- A = a(1,2,3), term_size(a(A,A),S). S = 7. ?- term_size(a(a(1,2,3), a(1,2,3)), S). S = 11.

Note that small objects such as atoms and small integers have a size 0. Space is allocated for floats, large integers, strings and compound terms.

- [semidet]
**variant**(`@Term1, @Term2`) - Same as SWI-Prolog
`Term1 =@= Term2`

. **subsumes_chk**(`@Generic, @Specific`)- True if
`Generic`can be made equivalent to`Specific`without changing`Specific`.- deprecated
- Replace by subsumes_term/2.

**subsumes**(`+Generic, @Specific`)- True if
`Generic`is unified to`Specific`without changing`Specific`.- deprecated
- It turns out that calls to this predicate almost always should have used subsumes_term/2. Also the name is misleading. In case this is really needed, one is adviced to follow subsumes_term/2 with an explicit unification.

- [det]
**term_subsumer**(`+Special1, +Special2, -General`) `General`is the most specific term that is a generalisation of`Special1`and`Special2`. The implementation can handle cyclic terms.- author
- Inspired by LOGIC.PRO by Stephen Muggleton
- Compatibility
- SICStus

**term_factorized**(`+Term, -Skeleton, -Substiution`)- Is true when
`Skeleton`is`Term`where all subterms that appear multiple times are replaced by a variable and Substitution is a list of Var=Value that provides the subterm at the location Var. I.e., After unifying all substitutions in Substiutions,`Term``==`

`Skeleton`.`Term`may be cyclic. For example:?- X = a(X), term_factorized(b(X,X), Y, S). Y = b(_G255, _G255), S = [_G255=a(_G255)].

**mapargs**(`:Goal, ?Term1, ?Term2`)`Term1`and`Term2`have the same functor (name/arity) and for each matching pair of arguments`call(Goal, A1, A2)`

is true.- [semidet]
**same_functor**(`?Term1, ?Term2`) - [semidet]
**same_functor**(`?Term1, ?Term2, -Arity`) - [semidet]
**same_functor**(`?Term1, ?Term2, ?Name, ?Arity`) - True when
`Term1`and`Term2`are compound terms that have the same functor (`Name`/`Arity`). The arguments must be sufficiently instantiated, which means either`Term1`or`Term2`must be bound or both`Name`and`Arity`must be bound.- Compatibility
