Viewing sourcecode with PyDoc

Hi Jan / Ping

I came across this posting (see below) re adding sourcecode viewing to pydoc
in the mailing list archive and wondered if anyone knew if there had been
any developments on this front?

We use Python/Webware and Webware has a nice .py -> html converter that does
pretty colours, etc. Perhaps this could be included into pydoc. I'm prepared
to have a go at that as long as its not duplicating someone else's effort.

Any thoughts?

Cheers
Mark

Hi,
	I have just discovered 'pydoc -p' which extract documentation
from your classes and presents it with your web browser and I am
delighted. Great work, many thanks.

I have a feature wish: Could I access the HTMLized source code (of the
methods) as well, say by clicking on some link from the page generated
by pydoc? That would save me from having to go to the editor and
consult the actual source code manually.

Jan

Send suggestions for pydoc to Ka-Ping Yee, ping at lfw.org

Alternatively, given that it's now part of core Python, you should be
able to post suggestions to the SourceForge feature request.
