Sat, 26 Jun 2004 00:22:26 +0200

what is it
An application to produce documentation for XSLT files in XHTML format, 
similar to what javadoc does for Java files.

changes since the last release
* new options
     -v, --verbose
         show more detailed information while generarating the documentation
         show the information of a ReST .txt file on the help page. 
Default is ``./HELP.txt``.
         browser window title for the documenation

* documentation of xsl:namespace-alias shows prefixes with connected 
URIs now. (thanks to Jarno Elovirta)
* parameters of named templates are commented now and properly linked 
from index page
* id and class attributes are filtered out of ReST XHTML to not 
interfere with pyXSLdocs own CSS classes
* removed unused "deprecated" tab from navigation
* updated to Pyana 0.9, should still work with Pyana 0.8 though
* code documentation, refactoring and simplification (not all though ;)
* lots of bugfixes and small changes

pyXSLdoc needs
* Python 2.3 (tested with Python 2.3.4 on Windows XP only)
* Pyana (tested with Pyana 0.9 only)
* Docutils (tested with Docutils 0.3 only)

Copy the XSLT files to document in a directory below pyXSLdoc (you could 
also give the complete path to your files but that would end up like 
that in the documentation). Then start the documentation process with

 >python DIRNAMES FILENAMES [options]

     directories with XSLT files to document,e.g. dir1 dir2
     All directories and XSLT files below a given directory will be 
processed, so you can just use your XSLT package main directory name 
(new from v0.50).
     single XSLT files to document, e.g. file1.xsl path/file2.xsl

-h, --help
     show this help message and exit
     sourcepath to XSLTs, all XSLT files under this path will be 
documented and SOURCEPATH/overview.txt will be used for the overview. 
You might also simply list all dirs and XSLT files as parameters.
-j, --javadoc, --htmldocs
     process comments in Javadoc style (HTML and @tags), default style 
is reStructuredText (ReST)
-dDOCPATH, --docpath=DOCPATH
     documentation target directory, default is ./_xsldoc
     show the information of this ReST .txt file on the overview page
     show the information of this ReST .txt file on the help page. 
Default is "./HELP.txt".
     browser window title for the documentation, text only, no tags
-r, --removedocs
     remove all comments from given XSLTs and save results in 
     path where XSLTs will be saved after removing of all docs. Only 
used when option "-r" is given. Default directory is ./_optimized.
-v, --verbose
     show more detailed information while generating the documentation

thanks for the interest.
any comment is appreciated
