Re: [isabelle] parsing a goal

Hi Peter and Dominique,

Thanks for your help!

In addition to Peter's insight:
To get the same parsing behaviour in both cases, use Syntax.read_prop in the ML code.
This will give you the same error in ML as in the lemma command.
(And Peter's fix works there, too.)

Best wishes,

    The parser tries to parse as Boolean by default, wrapping around a
    HOL.Trueprop automatically.

    Use PROP to override.

    lemma test: "PROP (Pure.imp (HOL.Trueprop A) (HOL.Trueprop  A))"

    note: This is the same as

    lemma test: "A==>A"
