re: What is Prolog like as a language? Is it still used for anything non-Legacy?

It's like sticking a brute force solver in a maze and hoping it doesn't get stuck at a dead end.

Well I think you can give it tactics, but I think in the future with parallel CPUs and then Quantum computers and smarter compilers non-deterministic programming is the future. Right now search is like Garbage Collection, Higher-order functions, and interactive REPLs was back in the 1960s with APL and Lisp; it was too slow for PCs, so a bunch of teens grew up learning to program in low-level languages and forgot that better things could be possible.
