There is no formal documentation on the halo profiler, or the light cone, or most of the things I've contributed.  However, I've committed sample running scripts and parameter files for everything to the examples directory.  At least for the halo profiler, all of the functionality should be displayed in sample scripts.  Some more documentation may be in order, but that should explain how to use it.

I think this is a great idea.  I think there's some great stuff that
needs to be documented.  I'd prefer that we write it ultimately up in
a Sphinx format; prototyping on the Wiki is fine, if y'all would
rather not dive into Sphinx.  I don't mind converting it back.

There are a few documentation tickets open from 1.0 that were for a
now-unlikely 1.1 release.  These
are all related to things like sample images and cross-references.  I
dropped the ball there.

Britton gave me notes on the documentation some time ago -- I have to
confess I dropped the ball on those, too.

I'll set up the repo to start including documentation in the trunk,
and then send an outline of what I think should be done...  Definitely
not assignments.  But suggestions.  We've made a lot of progress and I
think we're a lot closer to being able to push this thing out the door
than I thought.


PS I'm sending a paper draft to collaborators this morning; I'll be
back online this afternoon.

For example, I think I might have use for Britton's halo profiling tools right now, but there's no documentation how to use it (although I'm sure I can figure it out by myself, I'm making a point here). Similarly, I have intelligence to contribute about running parallel HOP which isn't documentated anywhere, and Dave has added/created some scripts of his own for yt which I'm aware of but don't know anything about.
