The formulas-as-types isomorphism tells us that every proof and
theorem, in the intuitionistic implicational logic $H_\rightarrow$,
corresponds to a lambda term or combinator and its type. The
algorithms of Bunder very efficiently find a lambda term inhabitant,
if any, of any given type of $H_\rightarrow$ and of many of its
subsystems. In most cases the search procedure has a simple bound
based roughly on the length of the formula involved. Computer
implementations of some of these procedures were done in Dekker. In
this paper we extend these methods to full classical propositional
logic as well as to its various subsystems. This extension has partly
been implemented by Oostdijk.
