Re: [isabelle] Sequence case

So I wrote:
consts first_occur::"('a × 'b) lift seq => 'a => 'b"
"first_occur ex a == (case ex of
 x##xs => if (fst(x)=a) then snd(x) else (first_occur xs a)
 | _ => arbitrary)"

But it don't work and Isabelle stops with the follow error:
*** exception TERM raised: Error in case expression:
*** Not a datatype constructor: Cfun.Rep_CFun
*** Error in parse translation for "_case_syntax"
*** At command "primrec".

Where is the problem?

Probably because "_" is not supported and the order of the cases must be the same as in the domain definition.
