The long evolution of everyday life brought to our heritage the “mountains” of relatively structured data (dictionaries, phone books, hospital data files, government data files, driving licence data, crime data, etc.)). New information “media”, physical (such as CD-ROM or DVD-ROM) as well as logical (organizational), such as hypertext, simply crave for mapping these old-fashioned information sources into new shape. This article shows how to achieve that shape automatically using the paradigm of higher order logic programming and particularly the HiLog language.
