Hi all,

My dad worked with DEC-10 Prolog in the late 70s and I'm trying to find a source or binary so I can run Prolog on a TOPS10 emulator. I know this is a long stretch, but I'd thought I'd see if anyone here might have a lead.

Hi Elena,

Nice. There are plenty copies of the DEC10 Prolog libraries still
floating around. The binaries is a different thing :( Did you try to
contact the AI department in Edinburgh?

Good luck!

The libraries I've found, of course, from your repository on Github, Jan. :) 

I'm looking specifically for the source or binaries for the DEC10 Prolog interpreter and/or compiler, I should have made that clear. I have not contacted the AI department at Edinburgh, but that is a great suggestion considering how hard these files seem to be to find!

I have found a binary for the DEC10 prolog interpreter! The binary was given to me privately, however, so if anyone would like a copy I have to check with the person who gave it to me.
