Possible to use autodoc outside of OOo?

Postby nbastin » Mon Feb 18, 2008 3:07 pm

(I initially posted this in the beginner forum, barring a more obvious place to me at the time. Someone helpfully mentioned that I repost here.)

Is autodoc a tool that could be used for other applications? We've looked into doxygen and headerdoc for documenting our application, and we could go that route, but I wanted to look into autodoc as well. It was unclear to me how to just get the code/binaries for autodoc and run it. Is there any documentation for this?

Thanks in advance,
Nick

Autodoc as used in OpenOffice.org is part of the OpenOffice.org SDK. So... if you download the SDK you get the Autodoc tool as well. I asked one of the developers about it, and he said that the Autodoc as included with the SDK is specifically designed to document the IDL. It can be used to document some other languages, but that is generally outside the scope of Autodoc for OpenOffice.org.
