Re: [isabelle] How do I do stone age interaction?

I'll be taking a look at Isabelle98 then.  Basic stone age is what I need.

Therein lies the difference between us.  To understand HOL4 I first look at
HOL90 in detail!

In which document can I find a comprehensive description of the (presumably
ASCII) lex (any version of Isabelle will do for starters)?   And does the
