      adapt the standard library · cb9aa0a2
      Andrei Paskevich authored
      except for modules/impset.mlw (because of Fset) and modules/mach/*
      (because of program cloning), the standard library now typechecks.
      
      This is still very much the work in progress. Many functions and
      predicates have still to be converted to "let function" and
      "let predicate". Here are some TODOs:
      - do not require the return type for "val predicate", "val lemma", etc.
      - do not require explicit variant for "let rec" if the code passes
        the termination check in Decl (see list.why)
      - what should become "val ghost function" and what should stay just
        "function" (see array.mlw, matrix.mlw, string.mlw, etc)?
      - some defined functions in algebra.why and relations.why had to be
        removed, so that they can be implemented with "let function" in
        int.mlw (since they are defined, they cannot be instantiated with
        let-functions). This seems too restrictive. One way out would be
        to authorise instantiation of defined functions (with a VC).
      - should we keep the keyword "model"? reuse of "abstract" in types
        breaks syntax coloring ("abstract" requires closing "end" in
        programs but not in types; maybe we can drop that "end" again?).

      "eliminate_epsilon" added in drivers · 9c20cd7c
      Andrei Paskevich authored
      Currently, the builtin theory why3.HighOrd (or just HighOrd) must
      be explicitly "use"-d. However, the type (HighOrd.func 'a 'b) can
      be written ('a -> 'b), and the type (HighOrd.pred 'a) can be written
      ('a -> bool), and the application operation (HighOrd.(@)) can be
      written as the usual juxtaposition. Thus, normally, you do not have
      to write the qualifiers. The builtin theory why3.Bool (or just Bool)
      is needed for "bool". The names "HighOrd", "func", "pred", and "(@)"
      are not yet fixed and may change.
      
      "eliminate_epsilon" tries to be smart when a lambda (or some other
      comprehension form) occurs under equality or at the top of a definition.
      We could go even further and replace (\ x . t) s with t[x <- s], without
      lifting the lambda. I'm not sure it's worth it: we rarely write redexes
      manually. They can and will appear through inlining, though.
      
      Anyone who wants to construct epsilon-terms directly using the API
      should remember that these are not Hilbert's epsilons: by writing
      an epsilon term, you postulate the existence (though not necessarily
      uniqueness) of the described object, and "eliminate_epsilon" will
      happily convert it to an axiom expressing this existence. We only
      use epsilons to write comprehensions whose soundness is guaranteed
      by a background theory, e.g. lambda-calculus.
