FIRST_TCL : thm_tactical list -> thm_tactical
Applies the first theorem-tactical in a list that succeeds.
When applied to a list of theorem-tacticals, a theorem-tactic and a theorem,
FIRST_TCL returns the tactic resulting from the application of the first
theorem-tactical to the theorem-tactic and theorem that succeeds. The effect
is the same as:
FIRST_TCL [ttl1;...;ttln] = ttl1 ORELSE_TCL ... ORELSE_TCL ttln
- FAILURE CONDITIONS
FIRST_TCL fails iff each tactic in the list fails when applied to the
theorem-tactic and theorem. This is trivially the case if the list is empty.
