The implementation contains a byte-code compiler and a built-in constraint solver which deals with [[Computer Dictionary/linear arithmetic|linear arithmetic]] and contains a mechanism for delaying nonlinear constraints until they become linear. Since CLP(R) is a superset of PROLOG, the system is also usable as a general-purpose logic programming language. There are also powerful facilities for meta programming with constraints.
Significant CLP(R) applications have been published in diverse areas such as molecular biology, finance and physical modelling.
