Description: Proof assistant based on first order natural deduction calculus
 intended to reason about computable functionals, using minimal 
 rather than classical or intuitionistic logic. The main motivation 
 behind MINLOG is to exploit the proofs-as-programs paradigm for 
 program development and program verification. Proofs are in fact 
 treated as first class objects which can be normalized. If a formula 
 is existential then its proof can be used for reading off an instance 
 of it, or changed appropriately for program development by proof 
 transformation. To this end MINLOG is equipped with tools to extract 
 functional programs directly from proof terms. This also applies to 
 non-constructive proofs, using a refined A-translation. The system 
 is supported by automatic proof search and normalization by 
 evaluation as an efficient term rewriting device.
 .
 Minlog can be used with ProofGeneral, which allows proofs to be 
 edited using emacs and xemacs.  This requires the proofgeneral-minlog 
 package to be installed.
