SYNOPSISeric4_doc [options] files...
where files can be be either Python modules, package directories or ordinary directories.
DESCRIPTIONThis manual page documents briefly the eric4_doc command. This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page. Instead, it has documentation provided in the file /usr/share/doc/eric/README-eric4-doc.txt.gz in plain text format.
eric4_doc is the documentation generator of the eric4 IDE. Source code documentation may be included as ordinary Python doc-strings or as documentation comments. For Quixote Template file (PTL) only documentation comments are available due to the inner workings of Quixote. Documentation comments start with the string ###, followed by the contents and ended by ###. Every line of the documentation comments contents must start with a # (see example below).
