1.1 anton 22: \ the stack effect of loading this file is: ( addr u -- )
23: \ it takes the name of the doc-file to be generated.
25: \ the forth source must have the following format:
26: \ .... name ( stack-effect ) \ wordset [pronounciation]
27: \ \G description ...
29: \ The output is a Forth source file that looks like this:
30: \ doc-entry name stack-effect ) wordset [pronountiation]
31: \ description
33: \ (i.e., the entry is terminated by an empty line or the end-of-file)
35: \ this stuff uses the same mechanism as etags.fs, i.e., the
36: \ documentation is generated during compilation using a deferred
37: \ HEADER. It should be possible to use this togeter with etags.fs.
39: \ This is not very general. Input should come from stream files,
40: \ otherwise the results are unpredictable. It also does not detect
41: \ errors in the input (e.g., if there is something else on the
42: \ definition line) and reacts strangely to them.
44: \ possible improvements: we could analyse the defining word and guess
45: \ the stack effect. This would be handy for variables. Unfortunately,
46: \ we have to look back in the input buffer; we cannot use the cfa
47: \ because it does not exist when header is called.
49: \ This is ANS Forth with the following serious environmental
50: \ dependences: the variable LAST must contain a pointer to the last
51: \ header, NAME>STRING must convert that pointer to a string, and
52: \ HEADER must be a deferred word that is called to create the name.
