The Prolog Development Tool - A Prolog IDE for Eclipse

The PDT is a Prolog IDE provided as a plug-in for the Eclipse Platform. All PDT features are implemented for SWI-Prolog, most also for Logtalk1). All native SWI-Prolog development tools (graphical tracer / debugger, profiler, …) can be used within the PDT.
