[Why3-club] inlining functions or explicit predicates

Dear JJ,

As you remark, Why3 0.88 is now quite outdated and my answer may not be 
very accurate. As far as I remember, the former "Inline" button was 
applying the transformation "inline_goal" which has the effect of 
inlining the defined function symbols appearing in an outermost position 
in the goal.

The doc for the transformations are obtained when typing `why3 
--list-transforms', and some of them are documented in a bit more 
details in the manual : "inline_*" are documented at the beginning of 

In Why3 1.x, the user interface for applying transformations is much 
more powerful, in your case you would probably want to type "unfold foo" 
where "foo" is your function symbol. The documentation is also visible 

I don't know how to help more without seeing the exact example you have.
