Abstract

This paper focusses on practical analysis for logic programs with delay. The method described is for downward-closed program properties and, in particular, groundness. A program transformation is defined which eliminates the delay statements but still enables an accurate approximation of the behaviour of delayed goals to be traced by the analyser. An implementation has been built which shows that the analysis can be both accurate and efficient.
