kayadoc2man(1) Automatic man pages for Kaya modules




kayadoc2man creates a man page for every function and data type from an .xml file generated with the -xmldocs option of kayac(1). Pass it the path to the XML documentation file to parse, and optionally (to ease Makefile writing) the name of a file to create when processing is complete. The third option allows you to specify your own author and license information (if this is omitted, kayadoc2man will assume that it is generating documentation for the Kaya standard library). If you want to specify the third option but not the second, you can of course use /dev/null for the DONEFILE on most systems.

Prior to Kaya 0.3.0 this utility was called xml2man
