I'm currently using Notepad++ for syntax highlighting, and the usual good 
practices for incremental development (if in doubt, compile again, or revert 
to last compilable version). The tracer though quite painful to read at 
times (it may tell you where is the error and even what it is (like stream 
errors) but you still have to figure out the actual cause of it on your 
own), has been sufficient for debugging needs along with a generous dose of 

(Of course, this is only coming from someone into his third month of Prolog)
