Since the development of Prolog in 1974, there has been increasing interest in the area of logic programming. Though Prolog is the most often used language used for logic programming, it still is lacking many features found in traditional languages such as LISP. These features include functional notation, array handling, and the concept of modularization. This thesis describes a method of adding a functional style of programming to Prolog. The addition has been a conservative extension - the language is completely compatible with existing Prolog programs. In addition to a working prototype, a method of compilation is presented.
