split_all_tac has moved within claset() from unsafe wrappers to safe

either remove split_if completely from the default simpset by

other case splitting rules to/from the default simpset: every datatype
wenzelm

diff changeset

for surjective pairing and splitting !!-bound record variables; proof
wenzelm

support is as follows:
wenzelm
parents: 5722
diff changeset
   353
wenzelm
parents: 5722
diff changeset
   354
  1) standard conversions (selectors or updates applied to record
wenzelm
parents: 5722
diff changeset
   355
constructor terms) are part of the standard simpset;
wenzelm
parents: 5722
diff changeset
   356
wenzelm
parents: 5722
diff changeset
   357
  2) inject equations of the form ((x, y) = (x', y')) == x=x' & y=y' are
wenzelm
parents: 5722
diff changeset
   358
made part of standard simpset and claset via addIffs;
wenzelm
parents: 5722
diff changeset
   359
wenzelm
parents: 5722
diff changeset
   360
  3) a tactic for record field splitting (record_split_tac) is part of
wenzelm
parents: 5722
diff changeset
   361
the standard claset (addSWrapper);
wenzelm
parents: 5722
diff changeset
   362
wenzelm
parents: 5722
diff changeset
   363
To get a better idea about these rules you may retrieve them via
wenzelm
parents: 5722
diff changeset
   364
something like 'thms "foo.simps"' or 'thms "foo.iffs"', where "foo" is
wenzelm
parents: 5722
diff changeset
   365
the name of your record type.
wenzelm
parents: 5722
diff changeset
   366
wenzelm
parents: 5722
diff changeset
   367
The split tactic 3) conceptually simplifies by the following rule:
wenzelm
parents: 5722
diff changeset
   368
wenzelm
parents: 5722
diff changeset
   369
  "(!!x. PROP ?P x) == (!!a b. PROP ?P (a, b))"
wenzelm
parents: 5722
diff changeset
   370
wenzelm
parents: 5722
diff changeset
   371
Thus any record variable that is bound by meta-all will automatically
wenzelm
parents: 5722
diff changeset
   372
blow up into some record constructor term, consequently the
wenzelm
parents: 5722
diff changeset
   373
simplifications of 1), 2) apply.  Thus force_tac, auto_tac etc. shall
wenzelm

solve record problems automatically.
