The mapping of InChar to OutChar is added to the character-conversion mapping.
The mapping of InChar to OutChar is added to the
character-conversion mapping. This means that in all subsequent term
and program input operations any unquoted occurrence of
InChar will be replaced by OutChar. The rationale for
providing this facility is that in some extended character sets (such
as Japanese JIS character sets) the same character can appear several
times and thus have several codes, which the users normally expect to
be equivalent. It is advisable to always quote the arguments of
Any previous mapping of InChar is replaced by the new one.
Please note: the mapping is global, as opposed to being local to the current module, Prolog text, or otherwise.
