1987 Proceeding of the ACM conference on Hypertext - HYPERTEXT '87  
Information management in IaTge scale soflware engineering is a challenging problem. Hypertext systems are best suited for this purpose because of the diversity in information types that is permitted in the nodes of a hypertext. The integration of a hypertext system with software engineering tools results in a software hypertext system. We descn'be the design of such a system called DIF. Based on our experiences in using DIF, we recognized the need and the potential foT developing a hypertext

Such a system might then be able to act as an active participant in the software process, rather than being just a passive, albeit useful stoTage facility. As such, we define an Intelligent Software Hypertext
