This part of ISO/IEC 13211 is designed to promote the
applicability and portability of Prolog modules that contain
Prolog text complying with the requirements of the Programming
Language Prolog as specified in this part of ISO/IEC 13211.
This part of ISO/IEC 13211 specifies:
a) The representation of Prolog text that constitutes a Prolog
b) The constraints that shall be satisfied to prepare Prolog
modules for execution, and
c) The requirements, restrictions and limits imposed on a
conforming Prolog processor that processes modules.
This part of ISO/IEC 13211 does not specify:
a) The size or number of Prolog modules that will exceed the
capacity of any specific data processing system or language
processor, or the actions to be taken when the limit is
b) The methods of activating the Prolog processor or the
set of commands used to control the environment in which
Prolog modules are prepared for execution,
c) The mechanisms by which Prolog modules are loaded,
d) The relationship between Prolog modules and the
processor-specific file system.
1.1 Notes

defined as conforming to this part of ISO/IEC 13211. Reasons
for including a note include:
a) Cross references to other clauses and subclauses of this
part of ISO/IEC 13211 in order to help readers find their
