@Robert Thanks for the links. :) (don't remove them, they might be useful to others) I am looking forward whether it was the problem he gave.

comment Good introduction to metaprogramming in Prolog?
+1 for helpful question. It is slightly complicated. I am not sure if I should split question. I am interested in metaprogramming in Prolog in general and I have some specific cases too (I am not working at them yet). In this question I am interested just in introduction.

comment How to better start learning programming - with imperative or declarative languages?
+1 good insight. I can make up these declarative statements as I remember them, so I describe the problem to computer and expect solution (TLDR order does not matter). I know that human would forget or mess up. In Imperative I solve it.

+1 for Immediate feedback. I guess Evaldraw with immediate feedback would be good too. It has C-like imperative language.
