       eric6_doc - eric6 documentation generator


       eric6_doc [options] files...

       where files can be be either Python modules, package directories or ordinary directories.


       This  manual  page  documents briefly the eric6_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-eric6-doc.txt.gz in plain text format.

       eric6_doc is the documentation generator of the eric6 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).


       These  programs  follow 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 files.
