PAT_X_ASSUM : term -> thm_tactic -> tactic

- STRUCTURE
- SYNOPSIS
- Finds the first assumption that matches the term argument, applies the theorem tactic to it, and removes this assumption.
- DESCRIPTION
- The tacticfinds the first Ai which matches tm using higher-order pattern matching in the sense of ho_match_term. Free variables in the pattern that are also free in the assumptions or the goal must not be bound by the match. In effect, these variables are being treated as local constants.
PAT_X_ASSUM tm ttac ([A1, ..., An], g)

- FAILURE
- Fails if the term doesn’t match any of the assumptions, or if the theorem-tactic fails when applied to the first assumption that does match the term.
