The birth of CLP is a milestone in the history of programming languages. CLP combines two declarative programming paradigms: logic programming and constraint solving. The declarative nature has proven appealing in numerous applications including computer-aided design and verification, database, data mining, software engineering, optimization, configuration, graphical user interface, and language processing. It greatly enhances the productivity of software development and software maintainability. In addition, because of the availability of efficient constraint-solving, memory management, and compilation techniques, CLP programs can be more efficient than their counterparts written in procedural languages.
