Macros/operations in abstract syntax
|Reported by:||PeterLjunglof||Owned by:|
Specifying a list in abstract syntax is cumbersome: (ConsA a (ConsA b (BaseA c)))
Simpler would be (ListA3 a b c), where ListAn is series of macros (which is autogeneraded, just as ConsA and BaseA):
oper ListA1 : A -> [A] = \a -> BaseA a; oper ListA2 : A -> A -> [A] = \a,b -> ConsA a (BaseA b); oper ListA3 : A -> A -> A -> [A] = \a,b,c -> ConsA a (ConsA b (BaseA c)); ...
Overloading would make it even simpler, but perhaps that's too difficult
There are also other circumstances, but this is what I thought of now.
