4.5 The Console Window

The console window used for the windowed executable is based on code written by Jan Wielemaker <jan at swi.psy.uva.nl>.

The console comes with a menu access to common Prolog flags and file operations. Most of these should be self explanatory. The `Reconsult' item in the `File' menu reconsults the last file consulted with use of the `File' menu. Eventually The SICStus Prolog IDE (see The SICStus Prolog IDE) will replace the console.

Note that the menus work by simulating user input to the Prolog top-level or debugger. For this reason, it is recommended that the menus only be used when SICStus is waiting for a goal at the top-level (or in a break level) or when the debugger is waiting for a command.
