Conjunctive partial deduction is a well-known technique for the partial evaluation of logic programs. The original formulation follows the so called online approach where all termination decisions are taken on-the-fly. In contrast, offline partial evaluators first analyze the source program and produce an annotated version so that the partial evaluation phase should only follow these annotations to ensure the termination of the process. In this work, we introduce a lightweight approach to conjunctive partial deduction that combines some of the advantages of both online and offline styles of partial evaluation. © 2011 Springer-Verlag.
