     3   In practice, super-contexts emerge either by merging existing ones,
     4   or by adding explicit declarations.  For example, new theories are
     5   usually derived by importing existing theories from the library
     6   @{text "\<Theta> = \<Theta>\<^sub>1 + \<dots> + \<Theta>\<^isub>n"}, or

    10   The Isar toplevel works differently for interactive developments
    11   vs.\ batch processing of theory sources.  For example, diagnostic
    12   commands produce a warning batch mode, because they are considered
    13   alien to the final theory document being produced eventually.
    14   Moreover, full @{text undo} with intermediate checkpoints to protect
    15   against destroying theories accidentally are limited to interactive
    16   mode.  In batch mode there is only a single strictly linear stream
    17   of potentially desctructive theory transformations.

    19   \item @{ML Toplevel.empty} is an empty transition; the Isar command
    20   dispatcher internally applies @{ML Toplevel.name} (for the command)
    21   name and @{ML Toplevel.position} for the source position.
