An Answer Set Programming Frontend with Templates



About DLT

DLT is a frontend for disjunctive datalog, extending Answer Set Programming with Template predicates, Higher order atoms and Frame Logic Syntax with nested frames.

DLT works as a pre-parser and can produce output compliant with the syntax of [http://www.dlvsystem.com DLV], [http://www.mat.unical.it/kali/dlv-ex DLV-EX], [http://www.kr.tuwien.ac.at/staff/roman/dlvhex/ DLV-HEX], and, partially, [http://www.tcs.hut.fi/Software/smodels/ Lparse+Smodels]

Linux (i586) and Mac Os X (Leopard) binaries are available (updated July 25, 2008).

  • Download the [attachment:dlt_1.6_linux.gz latest linux (i586) version] (1.6).
  • Download the [attachment:dlt_1.6_OSX.zip latest mac os version] (1.6).
  • Download the [attachment:dlt_1.6_WIN32.zip latest Windows 2000/XP/Vista binaries] (1.6).
  • Download the [attachment:axiomatic_modules.zip axiomatic modules] (for Frame Logic)
  • Older Versions [attachment:dlt.linux.1.5.1.tar.gz linux (i586) version] (1.5.1)
  • Older Versions [attachment:dlt.win.1.5.1.zip win (i586) version] (1.5.1)

Note: since DLT invokes DLV, you will need the DLV executable. Please find all versions at the official [http://www.dlvsystem.com DLV webpage]. A limited compatibility with other solvers is also provided (see for instance [http://www.tcs.hut.fi/Software/smodels/ Smodels]).

In order to receive notifications about new releases and/or other important events regarding DLT, please contact us at dlt_AT_mat.unical.it


Documentation and examples

Online interface

Try out the online interface at [http://asptut.gibbi.com ASP Tutorial Web Interface] (Examples written in DLT are those with .dlt extension. This web interface currently runs DLT 1.5.1).



Some interesting example:

  • [attachment:examples_1.zip Other examples] (.zip file)

Download all examples in a [attachment:all_examples_1.zip .zip file].


  • The Official [http://www.dlvsystem.com DLV] Home Page.

  • An useful [http://www.mat.unical.it/wrapper Java wrapper] for DLV.

  • Some solvers that allow DLT as a preprocessor:
    • [http://www.mat.unical.it/kali/dlv-ex 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.

    • [http://www.mat.unical.it/dlv-complex DLV-Complex] extends DLV-EX with function symbols, lists and set terms.

    • [http://www.kr.tuwien.ac.at/staff/roman/dlvhex/ DLV-HEX] features "second order" external predicates taking relational input an returning relational output, as well as higher order atoms.
