Did you ever find a solution to this?
What brought me here was that I was using vs-code (How to set the coq path for vscode (how to find coqtop)? · Issue #243 · coq-community/vscoq · GitHub) and it couldn’t find the path since I didn’t have it installed. The dmg didn’t work so I installed it with opam and now vs-code was able to find coqtop by itself once I installed it with opam. Perhaps that is your issue. This is how I installed it with opam:
install brew: https://brew.sh/
install opam (opam - Install):
brew install gpatch
brew install opam
check opam was installed:
- follow inria’s instructions: https://coq.inria.fr/opam-using.html but I think this works:
eval $(opam env)
opam install opam-depext
opam pin add coq 8.13.1
note: Pinning prevents opam from upgrading Coq automatically, which may cause inadvertent breakage in your Coq projects
then check coq installed correctly with:
To ensure that installation was successful, check that
prints the expected version of Coq.
hope it helps though I know this doesn’t answer the question of “where is coqtop” which I think would be nice to get an answer.
