No description available


This library provides variable attributes in the style of Demoen (Bart Demoen: Dynamic attributes, their hProlog implementation, and a first evaluation. Report CW 350, Department of Computer Science, K.U.Leuven, Leuven, Belgium, Oct 2002), and aims specifically at compatibility with their implementation in SWI-Prolog.

The designation 'dynamic attributes' indicates that these attribute names do not have to be declared, and attributes can be freely added and removed. The implementation consists of a thin layer on top of ECLiPSe's native variable attributes: they are stored in a hash table attached to a variable as the ECLiPSe attribute 'dynamic_attributes'.

Dynamic attributes can be freely mixed with ECLiPSe's native attributes.
