[eclipse-clp-users] Getting started with ic_hybrid_sets

From: Matthew Skala <mskala_at_...203...>
Date: Sat, 9 Jan 2010 13:13:48 -0500 (EST)
I'm having trouble getting the ic_hybrid_sets library to work in even the
most basic ways.  I can't create union or intersection constraints; it
gives an error about add2_foreachevent being undefined.

Since I'm a beginner to ECLiPSe as well (though not to logic programming
or constraint programming) it's quite possibly some kind of trivial
installation problem, but everything else looks okay.  The problem is also
specific to ic_hybrid_sets; I can use ic_sets and have it work.  However,
I'd really like to be able to use the hybrid solver.  Any suggestions
appreciated.  Commented sessions demonstrating the problem below.

% Another attempt: don't create a variable explicitly for the
