Abstract

Coding standards and good practices are important for all software projects, whatever programming languages they employ. Arguably, Prolog programming can benefit from a disciplined approach more than programming in other languages. Despite this, no widely accepted standards and practices seem to have emerged up to now. The present paper aims at being a first step towards filling this gap.
