# SWI-Prolog: A comprehensive Prolog implementation

## Forking, cloning and submitting patches

This repositories uses many [Git
submodules](https://git-scm.com/book/en/v1/Git-Tools-Submodules). This
causes the common issue that __fork and clone doesn't work__. Instead, _clone_ from
https://github.com/SWI-Prolog/swipl-devel.git and then associate your
clone with your _fork_ (replace `me` with your github user name).

    git clone https://github.com/SWI-Prolog/swipl-devel.git
    cd swipl-devel
    git submodule update --init
    git remote add myfork git@github.com:me/swipl-devel.git

See [How to submit a patch](http://www.swi-prolog.org/howto/SubmitPatch.html)
for details.
