Literate Smalltalk Programming Using Hypertext
The problem examined in this paper is: How and to what extent can hypertext support literate programming in Smalltalk? In order to examine this question we have created a hypertext system which allows us to write Smalltalk code and documentation, and to link code and documentation freely. The literate programs created in hypertext differ from those created with traditional literate programming tools. The main difference is that hypertext-based program exposition promotes description of program dependencies and is perhaps less suited for the detailed exposition of algorithms.
