       jsdoc - automatic generator for HTML documentation of Javascript sources


       jsdoc {-d=<PATH> | --directory=<PATH>}  [options] <SRC_DIR_OR_FILE> ...

       jsdoc [{-h | --help}]


       This manual page documents briefly the jsdoc command.

       jsdoc is application, written in JavaScript, for automatically generating
       template-formatted, multi-page HTML (or XML, JSON, or any other text-based) documentation
       from commented JavaScript source code.


       The program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two
       dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below. For a complete description, see the
       info(1) files.

       -a, --allfunction
           Include all functions, even undocumented ones.

       -c, --conf
           Load a configuration file.

       -d=<PATH>, --directory=<PATH>
           Output to this directory (required parameter).

       -D="myVar:My value", --define="myVar:My value"
           Multiple. Define a variable, available in JsDoc as JSDOC.opt.D.myVar.

       -e=<ENCODING>, --encoding=<ENCODING>
           Use this encoding to read and write files.

       -E="REGEX", --exclude="REGEX"
           Multiple. Exclude files based on the supplied regex.

       -h, --help
           Show this message and exit.

       -m, --multiples
           Don't warn about symbols being documented more than once.

       -n, --nocode
           Ignore all code, only document comments with @name tags.

       -o=<PATH>, --out=<PATH>
           Print log messages to a file (defaults to stdout).

       -p, --private
           Include symbols tagged as private, underscored and inner symbols.

       -q, --quiet
           Do not output any messages, not even warnings.

       -r=<DEPTH>, --recurse=<DEPTH>
           Descend into src directories.

       -s, --suppress
           Suppress source code output.

       -S, --securemodules
           Use Secure Modules mode to parse source code.

       -t=<PATH>, --template=<PATH>
           Use this template to format the output.

       -T, --test
           Run all unit tests and exit.

       -u, --unique
           Force file names to be unique, but not based on symbol names.

       -v, --verbose
           Provide verbose feedback about what is happening.

       -x=<EXT>[,EXT]..., --ext=<EXT>[,EXT]...

       The following bugs are known bugs:

           The wrapper jsdoc is not immune to spaces in filenames, either escaped or not.
