glb_poss(?SetVariable, -Glb, -Poss)
Obtaining both the glb and the still possible elements of a set
- A set variable.
- A set.
- A set.
Glb is unified with the (greatest) lower bound of SetVariable.
Poss is unified with the set of still possible elements of SetVariable
(i.e. its lub\glb).
If SetVariable is a set of sets and a union function attribute has been set,
then each element of Poss comes annotated with its respective length.
Fails if Glb can not be unified with the current glb of SetVariable or
if Poss can not be unified with the current poss (lub\glb) of SetVariable.
