Shell Scripting & Documentation
I was wondering whether there is anything similar to javadoc in Shell scripts also. :confused: I mean, just commenting using some keywords and then 'publish to html' or something of that sort, to get the documentation of the script.
Thanks for your time!
I've never heard of any formal system like that. Shell scripting isn't generally as complex as using a full programming language, as it's mostly just a way to string together various other programs in a useful way. Since most shell scripts are created as quick-and-dirty ways to solve an immediate need, there's generally not much call for a complex documentation system. Script "documentation" is usually just whatever output you want to echo to standard out, or add as comments inside the script itself.
OTOH, a quick search of apt turned up robodoc, which says it can be used with shell scripts. Perhaps that's the kind of thing you're looking for.
