set_basic_congs : thm list -> unit
Change the set of basic congruences used by the simplifier.
The HOL Light simplifier (as invoked by SIMP_TAC etc.) uses congruence rules
to determine how it uses context when descending through a term. These are
essentially theorems showing how to decompose one equality to a series of other
inequalities in context. A call to set_basic_congs thl sets the congruence
rules to the list of theorems thl.
- FAILURE CONDITIONS
Normally, users only need to extend the congruences; for an example of how to
do that see extend_basic_congs.
