dev-python / epydoc

Tool for generating API documentation for Python modules from docstrings

Official package sites : ·

Epydoc is a python documentation system without output similar to javadoc. Epydoc uses python doc-strings, importing modules, and introsepction in order to do its thing -- if your modules are not safe to import, you should look for another tool. Documentation mark-up is done with restructed text (reST).

proj/gentoo: Initial commit
This commit represents a new era for Gentoo: Storing the gentoo-x86 tree in Git, as converted from CVS. This commit is the start of the NEW history. Any historical data is intended to be grafted onto this point. Creation process: 1. Take final CVS checkout snapshot 2. Remove ALL ChangeLog* files 3. Transform all Manifests to thin 4. Remove empty Manifests 5. Convert all stale $Header$/$Id$ CVS keywords to non-expanded Git $Id$ 5.1. Do not touch files with -kb/-ko keyword flags. Signed-off-by: Robin H.
