The following program is a simple binary counter.
declare bit/2 key 1.The tuple bit(X,Y) stores the value Y of bit X. The value Y is either 0 or 1.
declare max/1 key 0.
declare pos/1 key 0.
declare num/1 key 0.
create num(0) sc
create max(M) sc
create pos(0) sc
with [M] while (pos(N), N < M)
do (create bit(N,0) sc N2 is N+1 sc set pos(N2)) sc
zero <- while bit(N,1) do set bit(N,0).
set pos(0) sc
while (pos(N), bit(N,1))
do (set bit(N,0) sc N2 is N+1 sc set pos(N2)) sc
if (N < M) then set bit(N,1).
count <- while bit(N,0) do incr.
set num(0) sc
with [M] while (num(N), N < M)
do (incr sc N2 is N+1 sc set num(N2)).
Having loaded the above program, a 5 bit counter, for instance, can be initialized by executing initialize(5). The predicate zero can reset the counter to 0 and the predicate incr increments the counter by 1. Finally, the predicate count increments the value counter to its maximum value stepwise and count(M) increments the counter from 0 to M stepwise.
