Chapter 1  Introduction

This manual contains documentation for libraries which are still part of the ECLiPSe distribution, but whose use is deprecated. Typically, the libraries have been replaced by newer implementation which provide similar or extended functionality. The old documentation is provided here mainly to ease the task of porting existing code to the newer libraries. Documentation for the new libraries can be found in the Constraint Library Manual and the Reference Manual. Here is a short overview of the obsolete libraries and where to find replacement functionality:
fd
The numeric functionality of the finite-domain library is subsumed by the ic interval solver library. The symbolic domain constraints are provided by the ic_symbolic library. The branch-and-bound functionality can now be found in more generic form in the branch_and_bound library.
conjunto
Most of this set solver's functionality is available in the new ic_sets library.
ic_eplex, range_eplex
These libraries have now been removed and replaced by standalone eplex. Chapter@4 describes how to port your existing code from ic/range eplex to standalone eplex.
