Abstract

Among slide-presentation systems, the dominant application offers essentially no abstraction capability. Slideshow, an extension of PLT Scheme, represents our effort over the last several years to build an abstraction-friendly slide system. We show how functional programming is well suited to the task of slide creation, we report on the programming abstractions that we have developed for slides, and we describe our solutions to practical problems in rendering slides. We also describe a prototype extension to DrScheme that supports a mixture of programmatic and WYSIWYG slide creation.
