YAP Prolog portable

It's here:

http://www.dcc.fc.up.pt/~vsc/Yap/

I know the portable app for SWI-Prolog, but YAP is a most serious and professional prolog suit (and so fast!).

I've tried to create the portable app myself using PAC, but without any success.

(I need this app for my thesis...)

Thanks.

I'll try it

For the record:
Program: YAP Prolog
License: Artistic License 1.0
Description: high-performance Prolog compiler
Website: http://www.dcc.fc.up.pt/~vsc/Yap/index.html

/* @John: does the Artistic License 1.0 conflicts with our launcher and installer? */

Exceptions

Although the license for the launcher and installer is GPL, we have built-in exceptions/allowances for other OSI licenses (which AL is one) as well as for freeware.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Version

Do you need any specific version?
From here, there are standard, tabling and XP and older versions available.

version

I don't know about version, I usually use the unic unix version, but I suppose that the standard version is good for me.
thanks.

Odd

The website shows the original AL, but the installer shows v2.0...

AL

Is this a problem? I suppose that the 2nd version is full compatible with the 1st one...

Testing; needs icon; needs better portability

I think I've it ready; I'll just perform a final test and I'll upload it.
We will need an icon before the official release; contributions accepted.

The major issue is that this will require administrative privileges in order to run; I'll try to patch it and contact the authors.

Partnership

@kAlug

I would like to maintain this portable app myself, also because I use a lot this app, and then I can add the new future versions. There is also the possibility of the help of other members and students of my university, interested in the project.

The only one impediment his the procedure for the construction of this portable app... If you're in accord to me, you can describe me the process to obtain the app; then I can maintain yap portable.

(In this days I try to obtain a portable app also for unix systems...)

If you're interested I give you my personal mail...

So...

Essentially, after he did all the work, you're asking him to give you the project?

No...

I ask to work with him, I don't need any notorius by this work, it's not interested for me, I would an always update software, and if he teach me I can help him...

The problem is that I don't know the procedure to create a portable app, also because I use windows rarely, but I would give my help, I appreciate a lot his rapid work to resolv my problem!

that's all..

The less non-dogfooded apps I have, the better

As long as you:

  1. Refer to me as the Original Developer (kinda forced by copyright)
  2. Intend to release this officially

Also, I've sent a patch to the author containing modifications to check HKCU first, then HKLM. Hopefully this will drop the administrative privileges requirement.

Versions...

The tabling version, differs from the standard one, for the fact that implements a speed up algorithm called "of tabling".
