Conversion to perform exponentiation on a integer literal of type :real.
DESCRIPTION
The call REAL_INT_POW_CONV `c pow n` where c is an integer literal of type
:real and n is a numeral of type :num, returns |- c pow n = d where d
is the canonical integer literal that is equal to c raised to the nth
power. The literal c may be of the form &n or -- &n (with nonzero n in
the latter case) and the result will be of the same form.
FAILURE CONDITIONS
Fails if applied to a term that is not a permitted integer literal of type
:real raised to a numeral power.
EXAMPLE
# REAL_INT_POW_CONV `(-- &2) pow 77`;;
val it : thm = |- -- &2 pow 77 = -- &151115727451828646838272
COMMENTS
The related function REAL_RAT_POW_CONV subsumes this functionality, also
applying to rational literals. Unless the restriction to integers is desired or
a tiny efficiency difference matters, it should be used in preference.
