nofernandes has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hello felow Monks,

Iīm trying to find a documentation generator for various languages as PL/SQL, C++, Pro*C etc..

There are lots of tools to generate this kind of documentation separately. What i was hoping to find was a tool that can generate good documentation of several languages!

This migth be not a perl question, but i have been wondering in another solution, that is to use the perlpod!! If i include the perlīs pod tags in a source code i could easily create good documentation with some style.

For example in a PL/SQL code:

/* =pod =head1 Title Documentation for program YXZ.sql =cut */

The only inconvenience in this approach is the fact that i have to tell the programmers to use this tags.. and give them the list to explain it. And i donīt know if they will accept this "protocol".

So, i think that the best option is to find a tool that generates html code.

Does someone knows such a tool or has any advices?

Thank you all!

    You can also look at Doxygen...

    Maybe JavaDoc would be helpful? (Despite its name, applicable to languages other than Java.)

    See Re^5: Doc Generator.

    Makeshifts last the longest.

      Hmm.. do you mean that i can use the javadoc format in for example a C++ program and then execute the javadoc filename.c? And then i get the html documentation?
