I keep stumbling upon or hearing about a plethora of hacks
do to reuse LuaDoc for their code. (I, myself, never tried
to use it
actually — being scared off by all these hacks.)
So, I have a question: why hack around and why not to fix
the tool (or
write a new one for that matter)?
I've been wondering too... add Lua support to Doxygen and
everyone gets easy access to a mature and widely-available
documentation tool. Have anyone tried going the Doxygen route?
Doxygen is also large and cumbersome.
Since Lua is so dynamic I don't think it lends itself to existing
documentation systems. That's a purely arbitrary statement though,
I'd be interested if somebody had actually tried this.
There is a Lua-Doxygen preprocessor that was mentioned on the list
before. But apart from that, I heard not much else.
Yeah, it's non-ideal, but perhaps pretty convenient for end-users
or Doxygen users who want it and can get it installed easily.
Nicer to be the end users rather than the developer of course...
