Thank you. My researched suggested that it was possible with other prolog implementations so I wasn't sure if I was missing something simple in pilog.
I also wasn't sure if with a simple problem space I could combine something like permute with a known range of possibilities. In the example below, I could generate a list of the whole numbers from 1-100 for the acreage and then have some helper functions to test for ranges. I wouldn't need to solve for a real number. It sounds like there are better ways to do it. I was hoping to come up with something as nicely declarative/expressive as pilog that didn't have a bunch of conditionals. I could probably use some dsl though. I have no experience with pilog and was interested in an application of it.
