C2man




<tool> An automatic documentation extraction tool by Graham Stoney.

c2man extracts comments from C source code to generate functional interface documentation in the same format as sections 2 and 3 of the Unix Programmer's Manual.

It looks for comments near the objects they document, rather than imposing a rigid syntax or requiring the programmer to use a typesetting language.

Acceptable documentation can often be generated from existing code with no modifications.

c2man supports both K&R and ISO/ANSI C coding styles. Output can be in nroff -man, Texinfo or LaTeX format. It automagically documents enum parameter and return values, it handles both C (/* */) and C++ (//) style comments, but not C++ grammar (yet).

It requires yacc, byacc or bison for syntax analysis; lex or flex for lexical analysis and nroff, groff, texinfo or LaTeX to format the output.

It runs under Unix, OS/2 and MS-DOS.

Version 2.0 patchlevel 25 (1995-10-25).
