Re: [isabelle] Browsing Main?

Hi Brian,

This suffices if all these theories are really included in Main. I was not
so sure of this, especially
after reading this:

theory Main
imports Plain Predicate_Compile Nitpick SMT

Also, this was not clear from the tutorial and the pdf documentation of
Main. Looking at the dependency theory graph, I have impression that we
have in the ancessor list above more theories that  there are (really) in

Thus, what I really wanted is to browse (examine?) Main exactly in the way
I can do, for
instance, for Datatype.

But I do not know if this could be done. It seems that Main is actually
created "under the hood".

Many thanks for the reply!
