If you have ever wanted javadoc-style HTML documentation for your database
schemas, or a consistent way of programatically inspecting a database schema,
then 'dbdoc' may interest you.

This small project defines a simple Python API for inspecting database
schemas, and uses it to generate documentation (optionally incorporating
descriptive text placed in an auxiliary file).

Support is initially provided for PostgreSQL. Would anyone like to volunteer
to implement the schema introspection API for another database? If so, get
in touch!

To find out more, please visit http://dbdoc.sourceforge.net/ , where dbdoc
has just seen its fourth release.

Best wishes to all,
