    39 \begin{abstract}
    40   \emph{Intelligible semi-automated reasoning} (\emph{Isar}) is a generic
    41   approach to readable formal proof documents.  It sets out to bridge the
    42   semantic gap between any internal notions of proof based on primitive
    43   inferences and tactics, and an appropriate level of abstraction for
    44   user-level work.  The Isar formal proof language has been designed to
    45   satisfy quite contradictory requirements, being both ``declarative'' and
    46   immediately ``executable'', by virtue of the \emph{Isar/VM} interpreter.
    47   
    48   The current version of Isabelle offers Isar as an alternative proof language
    49   interface layer, beyond traditional tactic scripts.  The Isabelle/Isar
    50   system provides an interpreter for the Isar formal proof document language.
    51   Isabelle/Isar input may consist either of \emph{proper document
    52     constructors}, or \emph{improper auxiliary commands} (for diagnostics,
    53   exploration etc.).  Proof texts consisting of proper document constructors
    54   only, admit a purely static reading, thus being intelligible later without
    55   requiring dynamic replay that is so typical for traditional proof scripts.
    56   Any of the Isabelle/Isar commands may be executed in single-steps, so
    57   basically the interpreter has a proof text debugger already built-in.
    58   
    59   Employing the Isar instantiation of \emph{Proof~General}, the generic Emacs
    60   interface for interactive proof assistants of LFCS Edinburgh, we arrive at a
    61   reasonable environment for \emph{live document editing}.  Thus proof texts
    62   may be developed incrementally by issuing proper document constructors,
    63   including forward and backward tracing of partial documents; intermediate
    64   states may be inspected by diagnostic commands.
    65   
    66   The Isar subsystem is tightly integrated into the Isabelle/Pure meta-logic
    67   implementation.  Theories, theorems, proof procedures etc.\ may be used
    68   interchangeably between Isabelle-classic proof scripts and Isabelle/Isar
    69   documents.  Isar is as generic as Isabelle, able to support a wide range of
    70   object-logics.  The current working environment for end-users is setup
    71   mainly for Isabelle/HOL.
