Re: [isabelle] Thy_Load structure don't exists for Windows

I got your idea Makarius and you explained me that before.

My point by saying the line "ThyLoad ~> Thy_Load" is useless was to mention
If a given change on a function or a module was relevant why at some point
changes happen on the same thing with the assumption that it is not
relevant anymore.

But the above paragraph of your reply explain why it becomes irrelevant.

By the way I am porting my old theories containing ML code to the latest
version that is why I faced this change.
