doxygen for perl?

by rvosa (Curate)
on Jul 14, 2005 at 15:42 UTC ( #474916=perlquestion: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
rvosa has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Dear all,

Is there a module/program that has similar functionality as doxygen but for perl? I imagine it wouldn't be able to sort out argument types and return types, but possibly some way to visualy organize and summarize method calls throughout a module (for example)?

Thanks!

    Please see a similar question I asked, Documentation system. I ended up using doxygen and doxyfilt for my project. Please also read the warning about OODoc in the thread if you consider using it.

    You might want to have a look at Ingy's Perldoc - see his YAPC slides for details.

    A quick CPAN search didn't seem to find anything relevant. I guess POD is too deeply etched into Perl culture to allow much space for alternatives... BTW: you bet that the future of code documenting has been discussed in p6l as well!

    This doesn't look to really duplicate doxygen as far as extracting documentation goes, but it may be what you're looking for to visualize method calls... http://search.cpan.org/~smccam/B-Graph-0.51/Graph.pm

    I use Perl Doxygen Filter. It works with basic OO-Perl. It doesn't take full advantage of Doxygen, but most things work (generating inheritance diagrams, member documentation, and all of the whizzbang formatting features of doxygen).
      There is a new project on CPAN for Doxygen support in Perl. Doxygen::Filter::Perl
        I just saw that version 1.50 of Doxygen::Filter::Perl has been released on CPAN and Sourceforge.

erix prods ambrus to (re-)start cbstream...
[GotToBTru]: I've got a program with an if ... or ... statement with 80 clauses
[stevieb]: 80 clauses? dispatch table?
[GotToBTru]: no, lookup
[stevieb]: no, I mean have you considered using a dispatch table. an 80 condition if/else is huge :)
[GotToBTru]: that is how this should have been done, no question
[GotToBTru]: probably back when there were 5 or so clauses
