@title[#:tag "events"]{Events and Definitions}
ACL2 events are special terms which define new functions or logical rules.
Defined names are in scope within their own definition and below; forward
references are not allowed. Use the @scheme[mutual-recursion] event for
mutually recursive functions.
@defform[(assert$ test form)]{
Raises an error if the given test fails.
@examples[
#:eval the-evaluator
(assert$ (< 0 1) t)
(assert$ (< 1 0) t)
]
}
@defform[(defaxiom name term :rule-classes rule-classes :doc doc-string)]{
Defines an axiom. Using @scheme[defaxiom] is not recommended.
@examples[
#:eval the-evaluator
(defaxiom sbar (equal t nil)
:rule-classes nil
:doc ":Doc-Section ...")
]
}
@defform[(deflabel name :doc doc-string)]{
Defines a label, for adding a landmark and/or adding a documentation topic.
@examples[
#:eval the-evaluator
(deflabel interp-section
:doc ":Doc-Section ...")
]
}
@defform[(defstub name args-sig => output-sig :doc doc-string)]{
}
@defform[(deftheory name term :doc doc-string)]{
Defines a theory (to enable or disable a set of rules)
@examples[
#:eval the-evaluator
(deftheory interp-theory
(set-difference-theories
(universal-theory :here)
(universal-theory 'interp-section)))
]
}
@defform[(defthm name term
:rule-classes rule-classes
:instructions instructions
:hints hints
:otf-flg otf-flg
:doc doc-string)
]{
Defines a theorem to be proved and named.
@examples[
#:eval the-evaluator
(defthm x+x=2x (= (+ x x) (* 2 x)))
]
}
@defform[(in-theory term :doc doc-string)]{
@examples[
#:eval the-evaluator

@defform*[#:id include-book
#:literals (:dir :system :teachpacks)
[(include-book "")
(include-book "" :dir :system)
(include-book "" :dir :teachpacks)]]{
The @scheme[include-book] form imports definitions from a file called a
@deftech{book}. Dracula supports three variants.
@schemeblock[(include-book "my-path/my-book")]
Without a @scheme[:dir] option, Dracula adds a ".lisp" extension to the base
name and attempts to load a file relative to the current directory. In the case
above, the program must reside in a directory with a "my-path" subdirectory
containing a book named "my-book.lisp".
Books must be valid Dracula programs; they must start with
@scheme[(in-package "ACL2")]; and they must contain only events, no top-level
expressions.
@schemeblock[(include-book "my-path/my-book" :dir :system)]
This variant loads a book from the system directory included with an ACL2
installation. Dracula simulates only a couple of the definitions from these
books, but allows other books to be included for theorem proving purposes. See
@secref["books"] for the list of books supported by Dracula.
@schemeblock[(include-book "my-path/my-book" :dir :teachpack)]
The third variant loads one of the books provided with Dracula, called
teachpacks. These books make use of DrScheme features such as interactive
animations and other i/o, and are also reflected in the ACL2 logic. See
@secref["teachpacks"] for the list of provided teachpacks.
}
@defform[(mutual-recursion def1 ... defn)]{
For defining mutually-recursive functions.
@examples[
#:eval the-evaluator
(mutual-recursion
(defun evenlp (x)
(if (consp x) (oddlp (cdr x)) t))
(defun oddlp (x)
(if (consp x) (evenlp (cdr x)) nil)))
]
}
@defform[(theory-invariant term :key key :error t/nil)]{}
@defform[(defconst name val)]{
Defines a constant value. The name must begin and end with asterisks.
@examples[
#:eval the-evaluator
(defconst *PI* 22/7)
(* 2 *PI*)
]
}
@defform[(defun name (args) (declare decl ...) ... body)]{
Defines a function.
@examples[
#:eval the-evaluator
(defun absolute-value (x)
(cond
((< x 0) (* -1 x))
(t x)))
(absolute-value 5)
(absolute-value -5)
]
}
@defform[(declare d ...)]{
Used in @scheme[defun] to give ACL2 extra information about a function.
}
@defform[(defequiv pred)]{
Declares @scheme[pred] to be an equivalence predicate. It is equivalent to the
following, with the supplied name substituted for @scheme[pred] in all
identifiers:
@schemeblock[
(defthm pred-is-an-equivalence
(and (booleanp (pred x y))
(pred x x)
(implies (pred x y) (pred y x))
(implies (and (pred x y)
(pred y z))
(pred x z)))
