Re: [isabelle] how to rewrite rule_tac x="A" in exI as tactic?

Hello Nils,

I suggest you have a look at the tactics in subgoal.ML.
Subgoal.FOCUS and friends should be helpful for your quest.
Maybe the Isabelle Programming Tutorial (Cookbook) also tells you a little bit about those functions.

I was hoping that someone of you could give me a little help with tactics.

I try to rewrite an apply-style proof into a tactic, for future

my goal:
rewrite apply(rule_tac x="A" in exI) as a tactic

my attempt:
val tac = let x = @{term "A"} in rtac @{thm exI} 1 end

my problem:
the bound variable x is represented in another way, i.e. I'm substituting
nothing with the let-in command.

my questions:
1) could somebody tell me, how it will work
2) how can i display the internal representation of a theorem (on ML-level,
so that i can see which term instead of x i need to substitute)

thanks in advance
