Template Coq development has moved: https://github.com/Template-Coq/template-coq
Template Coq is a quoting library for Coq. It takes Coq terms and constructs a representation of their syntax tree as a Coq inductive data type. The representation is based on the kernel's term representation. Reasoning about this data type can only be done informally, i.e. there is no Coq function that can take this syntax and produce its meaning.
Install with OPAM
Add the Coq repository:
opam repo add coq-released https://coq.inria.fr/opam/released
opam install coq-template-coq
To get the beta versions of Coq, activate the repository:
opam repo add coq-core-dev https://coq.inria.fr/opam/core-dev
How to Use
Check test-suite/demo.v for examples.
You must add the theories directory to your Coq load path with the prefix Template. This can be done on the command line by adding:
coqc ... -R <path-to-theories> -as Template ...
or inside a running Coq session with:
Add LoadPath "<path-to-theories>" as Template.
Because paths are often not portable the later is not recommended.
If you use Emacs and Proof General, you can set up a .dir-locals.el with the following code:
((coq-mode . ((coq-load-path . ( (nonrec "<absolute-path-to-theories>" "Template") )))))
As long as you don't check this file into a repository things should work out well.
