Abstract

This paper seeks to argue that Prolog can act as an intermediate metafile format within the software engineering lifecycle. It begins by considering graphical metafiles and then goes on to look at a computer-aided software engineering (CASE) tool which already uses Prolog as such a metafile. This concept can however be taken further. The rest of the paper looks at how Prolog can be used both within and between the various stages of the software engineering lifecycle. 1 Introduction Prolog has traditionally been seen as a fifth generation programming language (5GL) for artificially intelligent (AI) applications. This view has been promulgated by a series of textbooks which have concentrated on
