wenzelm@37159
    13
   Windows with Cygwin, Mac OS) and depends on the following main
wenzelm@37159
    14
   add-on tools:
wenzelm@33842
    15

User interface

wenzelm@36858
    33
   The classic Isabelle user interface is Proof General by David
wenzelm@36858
    34
   Aspinall and others. It is a generic Emacs interface for proof
wenzelm@37159
    35
   assistants, including Isabelle.  Its most prominent feature is
wenzelm@37159
    36
   script management, providing a metaphor of stepwise proof script
wenzelm@36858
    37
   editing.  Proof General also provides some support for mathematical
wenzelm@36858
    38
   symbols displayed on screen.
