Sorry for the insufficient explanation, but PAKCS does not

provide any specific implementation for FD constraints

but just reuses the implementation which is available

in SICStus Prolog. So, look at the documention at

http://www.sics.se/sicstus/docs/latest3/html/sicstus.html/Enumeration-Predicates.html

for more details. As far as I understand, it is not possible

to minimize and maximize several variables at the same time

since the labeling function commits to one solution if

maximize/minimize is used. A solution to your problem is

to define a single variable that represents the overall cost

which should be maximized. For instance, you can define

c=y-x-z and maximize c:

CLPFD> domain [x,y,z] 0 100 & c =# y -# x -# z & labeling [Maximize c] [x,y,z]

Free variables in goal: x, y, z, c

Result: success

Bindings:

x=0

y=100

z=0

c=100 ? ;

No more solutions.

I hope that helps.

Best regards,

Michael
