Codedoc - Automated Documentation Tool

From sasCommunity
Jump to: navigation, search

Have you ever wished there was a tool that could automatically create documentation for your SAS® source code?

Perhaps you've seen how the Javadoc tool turns structured header comments inside Java source into HTML API documentation, and wished for something similar for SAS.

If so, codedoc may be the tool for you. Codedoc is able to read a directory of SAS code source files and extract documentation from header comments that follow simple formatting conventions.

Codedoc is available now for free download (registration required) under the Eclipse Public License. The distribution includes the codedoc.pl perl script and a sample XSL style sheet for formatting extracted documentation as HTML.

For more information or to download, please visit its website (archived URL) or OS3A on SourceForge.net.
