Autodocbook is a simple perl script that runs though C code looking for specially formatted comment blocks and turns them into docbook sgml files, which can then be used to created man pages, info pages and html documentation. I developed it to make the task of documenting Panda a little bit easier.

Why Autodocbook instead of autodoc? Well, the name Autodoc is already taken by some code that does much the same thing for TCL, except it only makes HTML documentation...

Autodocbook 0.3

    In one of those great misteries of life, version 0.2 of autodocbook has been skipped, and I am now releasing version 0.3. Version 0.2 did exist, but was rapidly turned into 0.3 with the addition of the handling for Freetype's formatted comments.

    So anyway, check it out!

Documentation for Freetype 2.0.4

    A week or two ago there was a request for a man page version of the Freetype documentation. I have now modified autodocbook to handle the format used by the Freetype formatted headers.

    The sample documentation (which is not yet perfect) is available as a sgml set, a man page set, a man and sgml set, and a formatted html set.
