Re: [isabelle] qed and done take long for large goal states

Hi Larry,

With the plain matching, the processing times for the qed's and done's got down from about 4.5s to 0.8s on my machine (according to the Timing panel). Since there are dozens of them in that particular theory, the effect was quite noticeable.

As the author of this code, which is already pretty tricky, I would be surprised if it could be fixed easily. If it were, the penalty might be much more permissive filtering, which would defeat the purpose of this code.

It would be useful to see âgot indeed a bit fasterâ quantified. Did the change make a really big improvement in some situations?

Unfortunately, abbreviations are no longer contracted as they were if
eta-expanded terms are involved. For example,

 abbreviation "rel R â list_all2 (rel_option R)"

 term "list_all2 (rel_option undefined)"
 term "list_all2 (Îx. rel_option undefined x)"

Before the change, both "term" command output "rel undefined". After the
change, the second prints "list_all2 (rel_option undefined)".

This requires more rethinking of the approach.

Net.match_term explicitly says "MUST BE BETA-ETA NORMAL", in contrast to

I am unsure if the net operations can be refined to cope with non-normal
