PURE_REWRITE_CONV : (thm list -> conv)

- STRUCTURE
- SYNOPSIS
- Rewrites a term with only the given list of rewrites.
- DESCRIPTION
- This conversion provides a method for rewriting a term with the theorems given, and excluding simplification with tautologies in implicit_rewrites. Matching subterms are found recursively, until no more matches are found. For more details on rewriting see GEN_REWRITE_CONV.
- USES
- PURE_REWRITE_CONV is useful when the simplifications that arise by rewriting a theorem with implicit_rewrites are not wanted.
- FAILURE
- Does not fail. May result in divergence, in which case PURE_ONCE_REWRITE_CONV can be used.
