The varsubst library provides support for variable substition in user-defined languages. It contains a collection of routines for managing substitution environments and a generalized substitution procedure.
A predicate that returns true if the given argument is a substitution environment.
Returns an empty substitution environment.
Returns true if the given argument is an empty substitution environment, false otherwise.
Returns true if the given symbol K is contained in the given substitution environment, false otherwise.
Looks up symbol K in the given substitution environment, and returns the term associated with it.
Adds the binding K * V to the given substitution environment, and returns the resulting substitution environment.
For each binding K * V in the given substitution environment, applies procedure PROC to V and adds the new binding K * (PROC V) to the environment. Returns the resulting substitution environment.
Generalized substitution procedure. Predicates VAR? and BIND? are used to determine if a given term is a variable or a binding, respectively. Procedure VAR-PROC takes a symbol and creates a variable term. Procedure SUBST-PROC substitues variables in the terms of the user-defined language. Optional variable PREFIX specifies the prefix for fresh variable names.
