<language> A constraint-based declarative language based on axiomatic set theory and designed for parallel execution on MIMD architectures. Consul's fundamental data type is the set and its fundamental operators are the logical connectives ("and", "or", "not") and quantifiers ("forall", "exists"). It is written in Lisp-like syntax, e.g.,

 (plus x y z)

which means the relation x = y+z (not an assignment statement).
