This paper introduces the LINK systems as a flexible tool for the creation, manipulation, and drawing of graphs and hypergraphs. We describe the basic architecture of the system and illustrate its flexibility with several examples. LINK is distinguished from existing software for discrete mathematics by its layered interface, including a graphical user interface tied into an object-oriented Scheme language interface with access to Tk, and an extensible underlying set of C++ libraries. We conclude by briefly discussing roles LINK has played in research and education.
