 Results from the comp.lang.prolog poll of Prolog use

Results from the comp.lang.prolog poll of Prolog use, June 1993

This summarizes the responses I got from two questions: which Prolog
system(s) are you currently using seriously, and which system(s) did you
ever use seriously or are you planning on using.  Some people using
other logic languages (committed-choice, constraints, etc) responded;
their replies are kept.

I received a total of 240 language responses (usually more than one
per person).  Because of the small sample size and the self-selected
sample, the results should be taken with a few grains of salt.  The
results are given in random order.

To avoid any conflict of interest, no-one involved in the implementation
responded for Aquarius Prolog or Wild_Life :-).
