ROBODoc is a program documentation tool. The idea is for every function or procedure to include a standard header containing all sorts of information about the procedure or function. ROBODoc extracts these headers from the source file and puts them in a separate autodocs-file. ROBODoc therefore allows users to include the program documentation in the source code and avoid having to maintain two separate documents.
ROBODoc can format the headers in a number of different formats: HTML, RTF, LaTeX, or XML DocBook. In HTML mode it can generate cross links between headers. You can even include parts of your source code.
ROBODoc works with many programming languages: For example C, Pascal, Shell Scripts, Assembler, COBOL, Occam, Postscript, Forth, Tcl/Tk, C++, Java — basically any program in which remarks or comments can be used.
