W. F. Clocksin. The ZIP Virtual Machine. January 1983, with subsequent revisions. by Paul McJones — last modified 2019-12-03 15:00
W. F. Clocksin. The ZIP Virtual Machine. January 1983, with subsequent revisions. [By this time, Clocksin was at Oxford or Cambridge.] “Prolog-X is an implementation of Prolog which makes use of an abstract (virtual) machine called the ZIP Machine. The ZIP Machine is defined by a pointer format, 32 registers, the format of storage areas, an instruction set, and assumptions about the layout of data structures in memory.”
W. F. Clocksin. What is Prolog-X? Computer Laboratory [University of Cambridge]. Undated, but after August 1983. by Paul McJones — last modified 2019-12-03 15:10
W. F. Clocksin. What is Prolog-X? Computer Laboratory [University of Cambridge]. Undated, but after August 1983. Andy Cheese’s Bibliography on Functional and Logic Programming tags it CLOCK84d. "Prolog-X is a portable design for a high-performance Prolog system intended for large-scale applications. … With the impending demise of the DEC-10, together with the wish to run big programs on machines such as the VAX and 68000, I set out to design a system based on Lawrence Byrd’s ZIP abstract instruction set … . Starting around March 1982 I implemented as much as I could, time permitting, in Pascal on a VAX under VMS. … The last release was Release 1.6 (August 1983)."
WFC [William F. Clocksin]. Executing Prolog at Ten Times DEC-10 Speed. [Computer Laboratory, University of Cambridge.], 28 November 1983. by Paul McJones — last modified 2019-12-03 15:24
WFC [William F. Clocksin]. Executing Prolog at Ten Times DEC-10 Speed. [Computer Laboratory, University of Cambridge.], 28 November 1983. Proposes a benchmark of naive reverse of a 30-element list, which is said to take 53.7 milliseconds under DEC-10 Prolog.
W. F. Clocksin. Memory Representation Issues for Prolog Implementation. Computer Laboratory, University of Cambridge, undated, but 1983 or later. by Paul McJones — last modified 2019-12-03 15:25
W. F. Clocksin. Memory Representation Issues for Prolog Implementation. Computer Laboratory, University of Cambridge, undated, but 1983 or later. Proposes a conventional (uniform) heap memory with incremental garbage collector.
WFC [William F. Clocksin]. Notes on new Prologs. [Computer Laboratory, University of Cambridge,] 7/5/84 [7 May 1984?]. by Paul McJones — last modified 2019-12-03 15:27
WFC [William F. Clocksin]. Notes on new Prologs. [Computer Laboratory, University of Cambridge,] 7/5/84 [7 May 1984?]. "I suggest the Cambridge implementation of Standard Lisp to be an ideal substrate from which to build a mixed language system. At the moment, I (with ROK [Richard O’Keefe] and ACN [Arthur C. Norman]) am investigating the feasibility of writing a Prolog compiler to be integrated with the Cambridge Lisp system."
W. F. Clocksin. Reference Summary of Prolog-X. Computer Laboratory, University of Cambridge, June 1984; revised 20 July 1984. by Paul McJones — last modified 2019-12-03 15:28
W. F. Clocksin. Reference Summary of Prolog-X. Computer Laboratory, University of Cambridge, June 1984; revised 20 July 1984. Andy Cheese cites a 1986 version of this document. Mentions C as the “base language”, and gives the address space (and integer values) as 2^28, so presumably this is a rewrite of the earlier Pascal-based “executable specification”?

[David Warren.] DEC-10 Prolog implementation notes. 12 handwritten pages. Gift of David H. D. Warren. "Some handwritten notes by DW, probably mainly to assist FP in writing the garbage collector, and therefore probably written quite early (1976?)." [David Warren, personal communication, 18 Feb 2021]

[Fernando Pereira.] DEC-10 Prolog implementation notes. 10 handwritten pages. Gift of David H. D. Warren. "Some rough handwritten notes by FP. Probably a forerunner to his installation guide, and written quite early on (1976 or 1977?)." [David Warren, personal communication, 18 Feb 2021]

[Fernando Pereira.] Module summary. 1978? Gift of David H. D. Warren. "A summary of the DEC-10 Prolog modules produced by FP, probably also dating from Jun 1978. The author of each module is noted (DW or FP), with DW+ indicating a module written by DW with some modifications by FP." [David H.D. Warren, personal communication, 18 Feb 2021]
