Re: [isabelle] 回复: Re: The development of a large proof script.

Dear lyj238,

Yes I have received your response. And I would appreciate if *all* corresponding discussion would go through the isabelle mailing list (instead of private email to me or others). This way, answers will be archived and can be referenced later if similar questions arise again.

Having said that -- at least for me -- reminders about pending threads on the mailing list will not speed up my answering. When I have time to read and think about a question *and* come up with an answer I deem useful, I will respond. Not before ;)

    Dear lyj238,
    maybe you could give as some more details?
    For example: What do you mean by "proof script"? Is what you are
    about a standard Isabelle/Isar development, i.e., a bunch of *.thy
    with "lemma" statements inside and corresponding "proof/qed" blocks?
    And how did you create your "proof script" if not with
    Isabelle/jEdit or
    The largest Isabelle development I've personally worked on is
    roughly in
    the 5 MB area. This can be handled by session management that is
    standard nowadays (see the Isabelle system manual).
    In general, have a look at the System manual (that comes with the
    Isabelle distribution) and especially at session management and the
    "build" tool.
    As for your question about parallelization. Isabelle's "build" uses
    implicit parallelization possible due to interdependencies of theories
    (and maybe lemmas?). So yes, parallelization is supported *and* you get
    it essentially for free.
