\ the stack effect of loading this file is: ( addr u -- )
\ it takes the name of the doc-file to be generated.

\ the forth source must have the following format:
\  .... name ( stack-effect ) \ [prefix-] wordset [pronounciation]
\ \G description ...

\ The output is a file of entries that look like this:
\ make-doc [--prefix]-entry name stack-effect ) wordset [pronounciation]
\ description
\ (i.e., the entry is terminated by an empty line or the end-of-file)

\ this stuff uses the same mechanism as etags.fs, i.e., the
\ documentation is generated during compilation using a deferred
\ HEADER. It should be possible to use this togeter with etags.fs.

\ This is not very general. Input should come from stream files,
\ otherwise the results are unpredictable. It also does not detect
\ errors in the input (e.g., if there is something else on the
\ definition line) and reacts strangely to them.

\ possible improvements: we could analyse the defining word and guess
\ the stack effect. This would be handy for variables. Unfortunately,
\ we have to look back in the input buffer; we cannot use the cfa
\ because it does not exist when header is called.

\ This is ANS Forth with the following serious environmental
\ dependences: the variable LAST must contain a pointer to the last
\ header, NAME>STRING must convert that pointer to a string, and
\ HEADER must be a deferred word that is called to create the name.
