Oh, look, I quite like Prolog in some respects. Especially Nu-Prolog
which has safe negation.

I also highly recommend learning it. It will enrich the way you think
about problems, especially if you get to know it well enough to
understand how logic variables are implemented, etc.

ps I feel obliged to put in a good word for Mercury which I worked on,
along with a few other denizens in this forum. See
