    Research presented in this paper is financed by the BMFT grant Nos 1013212 4 and 1013210 2 as well as by IBM Germany (LILOG project). Our approach has benefited from extensive discussions with the LFG group at XEROX Palo Alto Research Center, USA. The LFG system and the generator have been implemented in Quintus Prolog on Sun workstations.Google Scholar
