Gödel is a new, general-purpose, declarative programming language that is based on the paradigm of logic programming and can be regarded as a successor to Prolog. This book gives a tutorial overview of Gödel, presents example programs, provides a formal definition of the syntax and semantics of the language, and covers background material on logic.The Gödel language supports types and modules. It has a rich collection of system modules and provides constraint solving in several domains.
