<p>The authors propose a book paradigm of program formatting that they believe is the most appropriate typographic organization of source-code documents. The authors claim that their approach offers the following advantages: an easily recognized document paradigm; high-level organizational clues about the code; low-level organization chunks and beacons; and multiple access paths by way of the table of contents and indexes. They describe two experiments that confirm these benefits.</p>
