# in(?X, ?Set, ?Bool)

Reified version of the set membership constraint
*X*
- an integer or an (integer) variable
*Set*
- a set, set variable, or set expression
*Bool*
- 0, 1 or a boolean variable

## Description

This is the reified version of the in/2 constraint. This means that
the boolean variable Bool reflects the truth of the relation *X in Set*.
If Bool is 1, then in(X,Set,Bool) is the same as *X in Set*.
If Bool is 0, then in(X,Set,Bool) is the same as *X notin Set*.
Otherwise, Bool will be bound to 0 or 1 when *X in Set*
is known to be false or true, respectively. The latter is only
guaranteed to be detected after X has become instantiated.

Note that if one wants to have booleans corresponding to all or most
of the set domain elements, it will be more efficient to use the
membership_booleans/2 constraint in place of many in/3 constraints.

### Exceptions

*(4) instantiation fault *
- Set is a free variable without set domain

## Examples

?- intset(S, 1, 9), in(E, S, B).
E = E{[-10000000 .. 10000000]}
S = S{([] .. [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9]) : C{[0 .. 9]}}
B = B{[0, 1]}
There is 1 delayed goal.
?- intset(S, 1, 9), in(E, S, B), B = 1.
E = E{[1 .. 9]}
S = S{([] .. [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9]) : C{[0 .. 9]}}
B = 1
There is 1 delayed goal.
?- intset(S, 1, 9), in(E, S, B), E = 3, B = 1.
S = S{[3] \/ ([] .. [1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9]) : C{[1 .. 9]}}
E = 3
B = 1
?- intset(S, 1, 9), in(E, S, B), E = 3, B = 0.
S = S{([] .. [1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9]) : C{[0 .. 8]}}
E = 3
B = 0
