Thanks Steve. Good to see a mail from the author himself.
Note that in case of "luars232", I have access to the library source code (it's on git and thus can be cloned).
I presume, in this case I could use ldoc on the source... or is it that ldoc won't generate anything useful without the LuaDoc style comments embedded in source ?

does that job, but the source needs doc comments (in LuaDoc style,
which is similar to JavaDoc).

If a library does not come with explicit documentation (in 'doc' dir)
then there's no way to extract it afterwards. Bother the maintainer in
that case ;)
