Hi Kish,
   the propagator looks like that (this is an example only):

propagate(Var, OldDom, Susp) :-
    propagate(Var),
    ic:get_domain_as_list(Var, NewDom),
    kill_suspension(Susp),
    suspend( propagate(Var, NewDom, Susp1),3, Var->ic:hole, Susp1).

Here the state is a domain of a variable.

What is the better way to deal with such propagators?

Best regards
