You might be pleasantly surprised that the Axiom PDFs
actually are heavily cross-referenced. If you have a
recent version of any pdf viewer you'll see that there
are hyperlinks in the pdf. The index is also hyperlinked
so you can look things up in the index and jump to the
most interesting point.

The algebra PDFs (volume 10.2, 10.3, and 10.4) are all
hyperlinked. This makes it easy to find algebra. In
addition, the two algebra graphs on the webpage are
hyperlinked into the correct pdfs so you can walk the
algebra graph and see the corresponding code.

The Interpreter (volume 5) even includes both forward
(calls) and backward hyperlinks (called by) so you can
find callers and callees making it very easy to walk
the lisp code. The compiler (volume 9) will be the same.

The hypertex pages (volume 7.1) has pictures of the pages
that the code describes so you can "hyperdoc browse" in
the pdf viewer.

Eventually all of the volumes will be fully hyperlinked.
The Jenks book (volume 0) and the tutorial (volume 1) are
"in the queue".

Yes, the PDFs are large but they are easy to navigate.
