The grammar at first hand is a bit odd. Especially the fact that we have a name token that in BoxProver can be almost any set of chars. That is some_name,1,2,3-5 is a valid name. I have restricted this a bit, but it is actually quite cool. We can for example treat sub- and superscripts and so on. Ex. some_1^2 is valid in BoxProver, so why not make it $some_{1}^{2}$. \ is allowed too, so \ can be use to map special chars. Anyway, the grammar, here for Grammar2Slr:

* I have made changes to the grammar. It occurred to me that a single _ can't be treated by the former grammar without naming it. So a line can now be followed by another line without naming and so on. Another thing to note is that the ending . is not necessary in my version of the grammar. This diverges even further from the BoxProver grammar, but the change has some neat impact. More on that later.

The grammar for predicate logic does not allow a formula as argument for anything, only terms (that is atoms and functions) can be used as arguments. In this version formulas are allowed because: why not. I'm not sure BoxProver allows this.
