PURE_REWRITE_CONV : thm list -> conv

- 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 basic_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 basic_rewrites are not wanted.
- FAILURE CONDITIONS
- Does not fail. May result in divergence, in which case PURE_ONCE_REWRITE_CONV can be used.
- SEE ALSO
- GEN_REWRITE_CONV, ONCE_REWRITE_CONV, PURE_ONCE_REWRITE_CONV, REWRITE_CONV.
