Abstract We demonstrate the use of a hyper-programming system in building persistent applications. This allows program representations to contain type-safe links to persistent objects embedded directly within the source code. The benefits include improved efficiency and potential for static program checking, reduced programming effort and the ability to display meaningful source-level representations for first-class procedure values. Hyper-programming represents a completely new style of programming which is only possible in a persistent programming system.
