Note: since DLT invokes DLV, you will need the DLV executable or one of the DLV spin-off prototypes. DLT works at its best with the DLV-Complex binary. The official DLV binary can be found here. A limited compatibility with lparse/gringo input format is also provided.

An useful Java wrapper for DLV.
- Some solvers that allow DLT as a preprocessor:
DLV-EX is an Answer Set Programming System with External Predicates, featuring a framework aimed at enabling ASP to deal with external sources of computation. It has been implemented and is currently maintained by members of the DLV team from Università della Calabria (some of them are involved also into the DLT project). Sooner DLV-EX features will be part of the DLV System.
DLV-Complex extends DLV-EX with function symbols, lists and set terms.
DLV-HEX features "second order" external predicates taking relational input an returning relational output, as well as higher order atoms.
