5.5. The System Menu

Console: System / Open

A dialog box or file selector lets you select a compiled PROLOG program (usually with a file extension of '.lkd') and launch it into the network. The Program is executed on some node in the network with resources to run a further process. It is not possible to determine the executing processor in advance. The name of the predicate to be called is the name of the file (without the .lkd ending) and without parameters. (starting " SHELL.LKD " results in the predicate 'shell()' being called).

If no resources are available in the network, the request is stored by the system management process and the program will be executed as soon as a processor reports free resources.

Console: System / Reset

This option resets the Transputer network and reloads the BAP system. You are required to acknowledge this by pressing the Ok button on the notice dialog. During the progress of the system start-up several messages are displayed to the console window. Part of the reset is a cleanup of all open file or window handles. This means that all simple or graphics windows open will be removed.

Console: System / Setup

The 'Setup' dialog box is used to change global system options. Most of these options are stored in the configuration file '.xwiorc'.

Console: System / Quit Terminates the server after prompting the user to confirm. This will terminate your PROLOG application, as communication with running applications cannot be re-established without reset.
