Re: [isabelle] Creating Theorems in ML

Hi Florian,

Thank you for your e-mail.

I think you the issue you pointed out might be the cause of the problem. I managed to get something going by separating the process into multiple steps. Creating a locale and proving theorems at the same time, while referring to locale state seem to have caused some issues there.

In the end, Syntax.read_props was also helpful to create the props.

note that antiquotations are resolved *statically* when processing an
Isabelle/ML block, hence I guess the issue is that you make a reference
to a symbol which is not yet present when the Isabelle/ML is parsed.

I do not know what your application context is, but if you are plumbing
Isabelle/ML pieces in a theory file (which is usually a good starting
point for experimentation), it is sufficient to have the antiquotation
in question in a separate Isabelle/ML block.
