knobunc's reply is good. Check Language::Prolog As far as I know, it is currently a beta version.
But, if you want to "reinvent the wheel", you should consider reading something on the following topics:
  • Propositional logic
  • Predicate logic
  • Herbrand's Theory
  • Godel-Herbrand-Skolen Theorem
  • Resolution and Robinson's Algorithm
  • Horn Clause Programs
  • Prolog
You can check them in that order :)
Logic programming slogan "I tell you what I know and what I'd like to know, without telling you how" showed its practical unapplicability over the years: every logic programming language includes extralogic operators, such as cut, that introduce elements of imperative programming in the language ("I tell you what I know and what I'd like to know, without telling you how... Well, I will help you a bit").
Despite of their impure nature, logic programming languages are very interesting and I think they're worth studying.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
