Building and installing
Run the usual
cabal command from the project's root directory:
A number of example proof scripts can be found in the
examples directory. They can be processed as is done with the example below:
aartifact -ascii examples/test.txt
The ASCII output should look as follows:
\vbeg Introduce !!>$x$<!!. Assume !!>$x = 5$<!!. Assert !!>$x = 5$<!!. Assert <<<$x = 6$>>>. \vend
