Epydoc is a tool for
generating API documentation for Python modules, based on their
docstrings. For an example of epydoc's output, see the API
documentation for epydoc itself (html, pdf). A lightweight markup language called epytext can be used to format docstrings, and
to add information about specific fields, such as parameters and
instance variables. Epydoc also understands docstrings written in
Javadoc, and plaintext. For a more extensive example
of epydoc's output, see the API documentation for Python 2.5.
