Endless Documents: a Publication as a Continual Function

Lumley, John; Gimson, Roger; Rees, Owen

HPL-2007-111R1

Keyword(s): XML; XSLT; SVG; document construction; functional programming

Abstract: Variable data documents can be considered as functions of their bindings to values. The Document Description Framework (DDF) treats documents in this manner, using XSLT semantics to describe document functionality and a variety of related mechanisms to support layout, reference and so forth. But the result of evaluation of a function could itself be a function: can variable data documents behave likewise? We show that documents can be treated as simple continuations within that framework with minor modifications. We demonstrate this on a perpetual diary.
