DLV-Complex: The Project

DLV-Complex is an Answer Set Programming System extending [http://www.dlvsystem.com DLV] by means of functions. It is a very powerful ASP system supporting (recursive) functions, sets, and lists, along with libraries for their manipulations.

DLV-Complex is based on the [http://www.dlvsystem.com DLV] system and on the [http://www.mat.unical.it/ianni/wiki/dlvex DLV-EX] framework, from which it inherits the possibility of defining external predicates.
