Re: [isabelle] THY path

JinjaThreads, which I am working on, also builds on three other AFP entries (Coinductive, FinFun and Jinja/DFA) and HOL-Word. The JinjaThreads theories in the AFP use the import system with relative paths explained by Tobias and use the HOL-Word heap.
Gerwin suggested to me that I do not build incremental heaps (HOL, HOL-Word, HOL-Word-Coinductive, HOL-Word-Coinductive-FinFun, ...), but rather pick one of them (HOL-Word) as the basis and load the other's theories on demand. This way, while building JinjaThreads, Isabelle loads also the other AFP entries again.

For my everyday development on JinjaThreads I have given up on building images of the other AFP entries and working with them because I update my Isabelle version to the latest repository snapshot every two or three days. So, I would have to rebuild these heap images each time then. Instead, I have organised my local directory structure to match the AFP's. To get to work quickly, I simply load these base theories with the "skip proof" option enabled, which is fairly fast.
