Chapter 14. LaTeX Package Documentation Tools

Chapter 14. LaTeX Package Documentation Tools

In this chapter we describe the doc system, a method to document LaTeX macros and environments. A large proportion of the LaTeX code available is documented using its conventions and support tools. The underlying principle is that LaTeX code and comments are mixed in the same file and that the documentation or the stripped package file(s) are obtained from the latter in a standard way. In this chapter we explain the structure that these files should have, and show how, together with the program DOCSTRIP, you can build self-installing procedures for distributing your LaTeX package(s) and generating the associated documentation. This chapter will also help you understand the code written by others, install it with ease, and produce the documentation for it (not necessarily in that order).
