var_inc_violations(?X, +Delta)

Increment X's violation count by Delta
X
A a tentative variable
Delta
A number

Description

Increment X's violation count by Delta. X should be a variable with a tentative value. The initial violation count for every variable is 0.

Calling var_inc_violations/2 on a nonvariable has no effect and silently succeeds.

Modes and Determinism

Fail Conditions

Fails if X is a variable without tentative value

Examples

    ?- tent_set(X, 27), var_inc_violations(X, 3).
    X = X{27 -> 3}
    Yes (0.00s cpu)

    ?- tent_set(X, 27), var_inc_violations(X, 3), var_inc_violations(X, 1).
    X = X{27 -> 4}
    Yes (0.00s cpu)

    ?- tent_set(X, 27), var_inc_violations(X, 3), var_inc_violations(X, -1).
    X = X{27 -> 2}
    Yes (0.00s cpu)

    ?- var_inc_violations(foo, 3).
    Yes (0.00s cpu)

    ?- var_inc_violations(_, 3).
    No (0.00s cpu)
