        Recent discussion about module() function reminded me of a
        question I
        wanted to ask for some time.

        I keep stumbling upon or hearing about a plethora of hacks
        that people
        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...
