An object-oriented Hypertext shell. (English) Zbl 0942.68140
The paper presents a hypertext shell. The hypertext can be defined as a data structure for representation of information, which includes a set of different tools for data maintenance and presentation. The shell defined in the paper has been implemented using a specalized object-oriented programming language LESS, developed by the author and presented elsewhere. The usage of LESS in creating hypertext offers a possibility for creating multipurpose hypertext which can be easily adjusted to specific needs.
As an example of using the hypertext shell defined, a geographical hypertext application has been developed and presented in the paper.
