This paper describes a reasoning system, called GETFOL, able to introspect (the code implementing) its own deductive machinery, to reason deductively about it in a declarative metatheory and to produce new executable code which can then be pushed back into the underlying implementation. In this paper we discuss the general architecture of GETFOL and the problems related to its implementation.

This paper describes how "safe" proof strategies are represented and executed in the interactive theorem prover GETFOL. A formal metatheory (MT) describes and allows to reason about object level inference. A class of MT terms, called logic tactics, is used to represent proof strategies. The semantic attachment facility and the evaluation mechanism of the GETFOL system have been used to provide the procedural interpretation of logic tactics. The execution of logic tactics is then proved to be "safe" under the termination condition. The implementation within the GETFOL system is described and the synthesis of a logic tactic implementing a normalizer in negative normal form is presented as a case study. 1 Introduction As pointed out in [GMMW77], interactive theorem proving [GMW79, CAB + 86, Pau89] has been growing up in the continuum existing between proof checking [deB70, Wey80] on one side and automated theorem proving [Rob65, And81, Bib81] on the other.
