# hide proof environment for restructuring

I am writing my thesis,

and i am in restructuring phase - sorting theorems where they should belong thematically. And it would be helpful to have all the proofs hidden so i am not laden with the additional information.

Is it possible to add something like hideproof to documentclass options to omit them when compiling the latex file.

You can put this code to the very end of your preamble:

\usepackage{environ}
\NewEnviron{killcontents}{}
\let\proof\killcontents
\let\endproof\endkillcontents

It defines the environment killcontents that kills its contents, and then "maps" proof environment to killcontents.

Won't just \newenvironment{killcontents}{}{} do, so you don't need the environ package? Also, I don't think there is a second {} for \NewEnviron –  Peter Grill Mar 4 '12 at 18:26
@PeterGrill No. Such environment would do nothing, i.e. leave its contents as is. And you are right, the second {} is a non-sense, edited. –  yo' Mar 4 '12 at 22:15
Duhhh??? Don't know what came over me. Must have been a momentary lapse of reason. –  Peter Grill Mar 4 '12 at 23:28
It was very helpful for me. Great! –  nichas Oct 13 '12 at 18:01
