Re: [isabelle] Isabelle 2012 on Win7

Hello all,

I now have a CygWin installation with the Isabelle2012 directory copied
to it's root.
Then I called 'isabelle mkdir MyTheo' and found the directory MyTheo
Afterwards I created a simple theory myth.thy in that directory and
tried to build it by calling 'isabelle make'.
I got a message of a missing Isamake file.

My two questions are:

a) Why is the makefile needed?
b) Which is the most simple makefile here?


Hi Jens, and welcome home :)

Just an hypothesis: are you sure you ran the “isabelle make” command from within the same directory as the one you use to run the “isabelle mkdir” command?

Say you invoke “isabelle mkdir MySession” from “~/foo”, then it will create a directory “~/foo/MySession”, will populate it, and will create the makefile as “~/foo/Isamake”, so you have to run “isabelle make” from inside of “~/foo”, not from inside of “~/foo/MySession”.

Can you check this prior to anything else?
