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

support is as follows:

   756
  1) standard conversions (selectors or updates applied to record
wenzelm

diff changeset
   757
constructor terms) are part of the standard simpset;
wenzelm

wenzelm

diff changeset
   759
  2) inject equations of the form ((x, y) = (x', y')) == x=x' & y=y' are
wenzelm
parents: 5722

   760
made part of standard simpset and claset via addIffs;
wenzelm
parents: 5722
diff changeset
   761
wenzelm
parents: 5722
diff changeset
   762
  3) a tactic for record field splitting (record_split_tac) is part of
wenzelm
parents: 5722
diff changeset
   763
the standard claset (addSWrapper);
wenzelm
parents: 5722
diff changeset
   764
wenzelm

diff changeset
   765
To get a better idea about these rules you may retrieve them via
wenzelm
parents: 5722
diff changeset
   766
something like 'thms "foo.simps"' or 'thms "foo.iffs"', where "foo" is
wenzelm
parents: 5722
diff changeset
   767
the name of your record type.
wenzelm
parents: 5722
diff changeset
   768
wenzelm

diff changeset
   769
The split tactic 3) conceptually simplifies by the following rule:
wenzelm
parents: 5722
diff changeset
   770
wenzelm
parents: 5722
diff changeset
   771
  "(!!x. PROP ?P x) == (!!a b. PROP ?P (a, b))"
wenzelm
parents: 5722
diff changeset
   772
wenzelm
parents: 5722
diff changeset
   773
Thus any record variable that is bound by meta-all will automatically
wenzelm
parents: 5722
diff changeset
   774
blow up into some record constructor term, consequently the
wenzelm
parents: 5722
diff changeset
   775
simplifications of 1), 2) apply.  Thus force_tac, auto_tac etc. shall

solve record problems automatically.
