Okay, say that I have one predicate called test, and I have another predicate called checker, basically here's what I am trying to do in prolog:

test :- checker(T),  if checker suceeds(i.e, returns yes) then print bla..bla..bla otherwise
          checker processes the remaining predicates here ........

how can I represent all that in prolog in one single rule of test?

kuntilanak, regular expressions might not be what you understand them:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regular_expression

They are not related to prolog logic etc.

If you cannot find a prolog forum here at EE, you might try:

The two forum links in my first post are the ones I found, but you could just search the web for "prolog forum" and browse, that's all I did.

There might not be any, your questions are the first I have heard of prolog.  If this is related to homework possibly ask other students in your class or a TA etc. about prolog resources they might be aware of.

it's not about homework. it's about a concept.. I was just asking whether it's possible or not
