DE AutoDoc 1.2.8 Documentation


The idea of the automatic documentation is to markup program source code with special comments in order to create the technical documentation automatically using these special comments from the source code.

For special programming languages there exist some tools for this purpose:

AutoDoc follows the same idea, but is independent of the underlying programming language.

Although AutoDoc has several options to control the output format, there are two basic output types, AutoDoc is able to create:

  1. HTML output
  2. LaTeX output
  3. Epub E-Book output

The output type is controlled by the parameter -outtype. LaTeX output has been added in version 1.2.0 and Epub output has been added in version 1.2.1. Both are currently experimental.

For recent changes, see the release notes.
