PythonDoc is a documentation tool for Python, inspired by JavaDoc.

Like JavaDoc, PythonDoc scans your Python code for doc comments,
and generates API documentation in XML and HTML formats.  Python-
Doc supports basic JavaDoc tags like @param and @return, and adds
a few Python-specific tags.  You can use PythonDoc comments to
describe module-level variables and constants, functions, classes,
methods, and attributes.  PythonDoc comes with a standard HTML
generator, but you can plug in your own output handlers, or use XSTL
or other tools to process the PythonDoc XML format.
PythonDoc 2.1 beta 2 is a bugfix release, which handles 2.4 decorators
a bit better than earlier releases.  For more information on the 2.1 beta
releases, see:
