src/Pure/consts.ML

2009-03-05 ago renamed NameSpace.base to NameSpace.base_name;
2009-01-21 ago removed Ids;
2009-01-21 ago binding is alias for Binding.T

2007-11-11 ago renamed Symtab.update_list to Symtab.cons_list;

2007-10-08 ago maintain typargs for abbrevs as well;
2007-09-30 ago maintain tags (Markup.property list);

2006-12-09 ago abbreviate: always authentic, force expansion of internal abbreviations;
2006-12-07 ago tuned;
2006-12-06 ago abbreviate: improved error handling, return result;
2006-11-07 ago read_const: include type;
