Hi Liu Yu,

Are you reading the chapter on Interval Constraints in the tutorial? The 
sendmore.ecl program is shown there, but I think it is meant to show how 
a simple program lib(ic) program would look like, while compile and 
running ECLiPSe peogram is described elsewhere. From your questions, I 
would guess that you have not really programmed in Prolog before. If 
this is the case, you should probably start with earlier chapters of the 
tutorial first. For example, chapter 2, `Getting Started with ECLiPSe', 
is in the form of a FAQ, and answers such questions as `How do I run my 
ECLiPSe problem?'

You may also want to look at other sources, such as a Prolog textbook, 
if you want to learn to program in ECLiPSe, but with a more gentle 
approach than the short `Prolog Introduction' chapter in the tutorial.
There are also various textbooks on constraint programming using 
ECLiPSe, a recent one (2006) is `Constraint Logic Programming using 
ECLiPSe', by Apt and Wallace. There are various pointers in the 
literature page on the eclipse-clp website 

In addition, you may want to look at the ECLiPSe ELearning slides:

which I mentioned in a recent post to this mailing list.
