The CtCoq system is a graphical user-interface using a distributed architecture adapted to the Coq proof system [3]. Basic features provided by this graphical interface are direct manipulation of formulas and commands using the mouse, mathematical notations with an extended character set and colors, menus for guiding users in their manipulations of commands and formulas. More advanced features also include textual explanation of proofs, proof-by-pointing, and script management.
