This paper presents the results of the EFOOL project. EFOOL (Evaluation of Functional and Object-Oriented Languages) is a quantitative evaluation of the functional and object-oriented paradigms. The aim of the project is to investigate whether or not the quality of code produced using a functional language is significantly different from that produced using(More)
This paper describes an open hypermedia system which allows content based navigation and retrieval from both text and non-text media. The system provides a variety of link types including the generic link which, once authored from a particular selection, may be followed from any instance matching that selection. The paper also describes the concept of a(More)
In this paper we describe two approaches for providing a versatile mechanism for retrieval and navigation using spatially related feature selections. As an example, we build colour histograms from images, and use a quadratic histogram match to achieve a retrieval method based on the spatial colour distribution of the images. Navigation is facilitated by a(More)
Traditional hypermedia systems can be extended to allow content based matching to give more flexibility for user navigation, but this approach is still limited by the capabilities of multimedia matching technology. The addition of a multimedia thesaurus can overcome some of these limitations by allowing multimedia representations of concepts to act like(More)
