You can use the library Propia:

[eclipse 1]: lib(fd).
fd_domain.eco loaded traceable 0 bytes in 0.02 seconds
fd_arith.eco loaded traceable 0 bytes in 0.07 seconds
fd_util.eco loaded traceable 0 bytes in 0.01 seconds
fd_chip.eco loaded traceable 0 bytes in 0.02 seconds
fd_elipsys.eco loaded traceable 0 bytes in 0.01 seconds
fd.eco     loaded traceable 0 bytes in 0.12 seconds

Yes (0.12s cpu)
[eclipse 2]: lib(propia).
propia.eco loaded traceable 0 bytes in 0.02 seconds

Yes (0.02s cpu)
[eclipse 3]: A::0..5, B::3..10, C :: 20..30, member(X,[A,B,C]) infers most.

X = X{[0..10, 20..30]}
A = A{[0..5]}
B = B{[3..10]}
C = C{[20..30]}


Delayed goals:
         member(X{[0..10, 20..30]}, [A{[0..5]}, B{[3..10]}, 
C{[20..30]}]) infers
most
Yes (0.00s cpu)

Cheers,
Marco
