NAME

       edoc_extract - EDoc documentation extraction.

DESCRIPTION

       EDoc documentation extraction.

DATA TYPES

         edoc_env() = edoc_lib:edoc_env():

         filename() = file:filename():

         proplist() = proplists:property():

         syntaxTree() = erl_syntax:syntaxTree():

EXPORTS

       file(File::filename(),  Context,  Env::edoc_env(),  Options::proplist())  ->  {ok, Tags} |
       {error, Reason}

              Types:

                 Context = overview
                 Tags = [term()]
                 Reason = term()

              Reads a text file and returns the list of tags in  the  file.  Any  lines  of  text
              before   the   first   tag   are   ignored.   Env  is  an  environment  created  by
              edoc_lib:get_doc_env/3. Upon error, Reason is an atom returned  from  the  call  to
              file:read_file/1 or the atom 'invalid_unicode'.

              See text/4 for options.

       header(File::filename(),  Env::edoc_env(),  Options::proplist())  ->  {ok, Tags} | {error,
       Reason}

              Types:

                 Tags = [term()]
                 Reason = term()

              Similar to header/5, but reads the syntax tree and the comments from the  specified
              file.

              See also: header/4, edoc:read_comments/2, edoc:read_source/2.

       header(Forms,  File::filename(),  Env::edoc_env(),  Options::proplist())  ->  {ok, Tags} |
       {error, Reason}

              Types:

                 Forms = syntaxTree() | [syntaxTree()]
                 Tags = [term()]
                 Reason = term()

              Extracts EDoc documentation from commented header file  syntax  trees.  Similar  to
              source/5,  but ignores any documentation that occurs before a module declaration or
              a function definition. (Warning messages are printed if content  may  be  ignored.)
              Env is assumed to already be set up with a suitable module context.

              See also: erl_recomment(3erl), header/5.

       header(Forms,      Comments::[edoc:comment()],      File::filename(),     Env::edoc_env(),
       Options::proplist()) -> {ok, Tags} | {error, Reason}

              Types:

                 Forms = syntaxTree() | [syntaxTree()]
                 Tags = [term()]
                 Reason = term()

              Similar to header/4, but first inserts the given comments in the syntax trees.  The
              syntax trees must contain valid position information. (Cf. edoc:read_comments/2.)

              See also: erl_recomment(3erl), header/3, header/4.

       source(File::filename(),    Env::edoc_env(),    Options::proplist())    ->    {ModuleName,
       edoc:edoc_module()}

              Types:

                 ModuleName = atom()
                 proplist() = [term()]

              Like source/5, but reads the syntax tree and the comments from the specified file.

              See also: source/4, edoc:read_comments/2, edoc:read_source/2.

       source(Forms,  File::filename(),  Env::edoc_env(),  Options::proplist())  ->  {ModuleName,
       edoc:edoc_module()}

              Types:

                 Forms = syntaxTree() | [syntaxTree()]
                 ModuleName = atom()

              Extracts  EDoc  documentation  from  commented  source code syntax trees. The given
              Forms must be a single syntax tree of type form_list, or a  list  of  syntax  trees
              representing "program forms" (cf. edoc:read_source/2. Env is an environment created
              by edoc_lib:get_doc_env/3. The File argument is used for error reporting and output
              file name generation only.

              See edoc:get_doc/2 for descriptions of the def, hidden, private, and todo options.

              See also: erl_recomment(3erl), source/5, edoc:read_comments/2, edoc:read_source/2.

       source(Forms,      Comments::[edoc:comment()],      File::filename(),     Env::edoc_env(),
       Options::proplist()) -> {ModuleName, edoc:edoc_module()}

              Types:

                 Forms = syntaxTree() | [syntaxTree()]
                 ModuleName = atom()

              Like source/4, but first inserts the given comments in the syntax trees. The syntax
              trees must contain valid position information. (Cf. edoc:read_comments/2.)

              See    also:   erl_recomment(3erl),   source/3,   source/4,   edoc:read_comments/2,
              edoc:read_source/2.

       text(Text::string(), Context, Env::edoc_env(), Options::proplist()) -> Tags

              Types:

                 Context = overview
                 Tags = [term()]

              Returns the list of tags in the text. Any lines of text before the  first  tag  are
              ignored. Env is an environment created by edoc_lib:get_doc_env/3.

              See source/4 for a description of the def option.
