call the ACL2 theorem prover's simplifier
Major Section: PROOF-CHECKER-COMMANDS
Examples: bash -- attempt to prove the current goal by simplification alone (bash ("Subgoal 2" :by foo) ("Subgoal 1" :use bar)) -- attempt to prove the current goal by simplification alone, with the indicated hints General Form: (bash &rest hints)Call the theorem prover's simplifier, creating a subgoal for each resulting goal.
Notice that unlike
prove, the arguments to
bash are spread out, and
are all hints.
Bash is similar to
reduce in that neither of these allows induction.
bash only allows simplification, while
reduce allows processes
Remark: All forcing rounds will be skipped (unless there are more than 15 subgoals generated in the first forcing round, an injustice that should be rectified, but might remain unless there is pressure to fix it).
