Re: [isabelle] Eisbach match drule

Hello Zhe.

I'm not an Eisbach developer, but I think I know what the problem is.
When you match in the premises, the premises get lifted out of the usual
goal state. The matched premise becomes available as a rule, but isn't
in the goal any more.

So you could do this:

lemma "A & B ==> A | B"
   apply (match premises in f: "A & B" â âcut_tac dummy[OF f]â)
   by assumption

or this (put it back then drule):

lemma "A & B â True â A | B"
  by (match premises in f: "A & B" â âcut_tac f, drule dummyâ)

Does that help?

Dear Eisbach developers,

I ran into a problem when using drule in match. It seems that drule is not supported, but rule is. For example, let's first define a silly lemma here:

lemma dummy: "A â B â B"
by auto

Then, when proving the following lemma, I try:

lemma "A â B â A â B"
apply (match premises in "A â B" â âdrule dummyâ)

But Isabelle says "Failed to apply proof method". However, the following is ok:

lemma "A â B â A â B"
apply (drule dummy)

Is there a way to use drule inside match? Or, is there an alternative to drule?

Thanks a lot,
