Sets the rewrite stack depth used by the rewriter
Example Forms: (set-rewrite-stack-limit 30) ; set to small limit :set-rewrite-stack-limit 30 ; same as above (set-rewrite-stack-limit *default-rewrite-stack-limit*) ; the default (set-rewrite-stack-limit (1- (expt 2 28))) ; maximum legal limit :set-rewrite-stack-limit nil ; same as above -- essentially, no limit
This event sets the maximum stack depth for calls of certain functions that
implement the ACL2 rewriter; see rewrite-stack-limit. It must be a
non-negative integer less than 2^28. A call
(table acl2-defaults-table :rewrite-stack-limit limit).
For a different but somewhat related concept, see backchain-limit.
