Re: [isabelle] Problems with Code-Generator

Dear RenÃ,

This problem only shows up if you import Code_Target_Nat from HOL/Library, which changes the code representation of naturals from 0/Suc to a copy of natural, which are in turn implemented by target-language integers. There is a preprocessor in Code_Abstract_Nat, which tries to eliminate pattern-matching on Suc, but it only works if there a corresponding code equation for 0, too.

One could try to come up with a better implementation, but it's not that easy.

Dear list,

we just stumbled upon the translation of pattern matching of natural numbers for code-generation in the presence of target-language integers.

theory Test

fun foo :: "nat â bool" where
  "foo (Suc 0) = True"

export_code foo in Haskell

(* "Nat.Suc" is not a constructor, on left hand side of equation, in theorem:
foo (Suc zero_nat_inst.zero_nat) â True *)


Of course, it is easy to work around by providing suitable code-equations manually, but perhaps this can be fixed in the future.
The problem occurs in both Isabelle 2016 and in the development version d4b89572ae71.
