Re: GNOME Documentation Framework


I'm making the API documentation extractor a 2 piece process.   The first
strips a block of docu-comments out (whether that's comments about a single
function, or a whole module -see John's later email).  This information
gets passed off to some other (probably externally chosen) module that 
handles the actual formatting of the data, for some particular target.

I have been thinking about using Welder for that second piece, and just 
writing various Welder plugins for each output document format: ie,
one for DocBook, maybe another for HTML, a third for man, or whatever.

Initially, I plan on just making the second part only do DocBook (without
Welder's intervention).  Afterwords, I'll find out what other formats
people want to be able to grab the information in.
