PDT 2.0: Added / improved functionality

Multifile predicate awareness

  • The Outline and the Search in the PDT always show all the clauses of a predicate, also for multifile predicates.

Multifile predicate navigation

  • In the Outline navigation to a local predicate or clause is by single click, navigation to an external predicate or clause by double-click. Read more...
  • In search results there is no distinction between a local file and other files. Thus navigation to a predicate / clause is always by double-clicking the respective icon.
  • Global Search Predicates and modules can be searched via the Eclipse Search Menu item (or Ctrl H).
  • Search from Console A global search can also be triggered from the console by selecting a predicate indicator displayed in the console and using the context menu.
  • Categorized Editor Search Results Results of searches for predicate definitions triggered from a selection in an Editor are categorized by their visibility from the module associated to the editor's file.

Sample project creation

  • Selecting “File → New → Example… → PDT Example Projects”

lets you create a project containing sample Prolog files.

  These files are partly referred to in this documentation.
  You can use the sample project to get started quickly. 
  You can recreate it as often as you need and as many simultaneous copies as you need. 

Other features

  • Improved auto-completion in the Prolog console
  • Improved updating of the outline
  • Restructured PDT preferences
  • New options “auto-consult on saving” in editor preferences
