Unformatted text preview: • prefix, infix, or postfix, e.g. \+ true, 2*5, 7! – Precedence • An integer associated with each operator, the closer to 1, the higher the precedence • e.g. multiplication has a higher precedence than addition, a+b*c is +(a, *(b,c)) – Associativity • Left or right • All arithmetic operators left associative • e.g. 8/4/4 is (8/4)/4 York University- CSE 3401- V. Movahedi 24 08_IO Declaring operators • An operator is declared by a goal: :- op( Precedence, Specifier, Name). For example: :- op(1000, xf, myop). :- op(500, yfx , ‘+’). :- op(400, yfx , ‘*’). :- op(900, fy , ‘ \ +’). • Precedence: an integer between 1 and 1200, lower values, higher priority • Name: the operator’s name • Specifier: specifies position and associativity valid specifiers: fx, fy, xfx, xfy, yfx, yfy, xf, yf York University- CSE 3401- V.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
