NAME - The configuration and Utility perl module for AutoDia.




       AutoDia takes source files as input and using a handler parses them to create
       documentation through templates. The handlers allow AutoDia to parse any language by
       providing a handler and registering in in The templates allow the output to be
       heavily customised from Dia XML to simple HTML and seperates the logic of the application
       from the presentation of the results.

       AutoDia is written in perl and defaults to the perl handler and file extension matching
       unless a language is specified using the -l switch.

       AutoDia requires Template Toolkit and Perl 5. Some handlers and templates may require
       additional software.

       To add handlers or languages edit this file.

       To add a handler/parser
           Add the language or name of the parser and the name of the module to the %handlers
           hash in the getHandlers function.

           for example :

           "perl"      => 'HandlerPerl',

           Documentation on writing your own handler can be found in the HandlerPerl and Handler
           perl modules

       To add a new language or file extension or file matching patter
           Add the name of the pattern and a hashreference to its properties to %patterns in the
           get_patterns function.

           for example :

           "perl" => \%perl,

           Create a hash of its properties that will be pointed to by the above hashref

           for example :

           my %perl = (
                         regex     => '\w+\.p[ml]$',
                         wildcards => [
                                       "pl", "pm",


       use the autodia script to run autodia.

       autodia ([-i filename [-p path] ] or [-d directory [-r] ]) [options]
       autodia -i filename            : use filename as input
       autodia -i 'filea fileb filec' : use filea, fileb and filec as input
       autodia -i filename -p ..      : use ../filename as input file
       autodia -d directoryname       : use *.pl/pm in directoryname as input files
       autodia -d 'foo bar quz'       : use *pl/pm in directories foo, bar and quz as input files
       autodia -d directory -r        : use *pl/pm in directory and its subdirectories as input
       autodia -o outfile.xml         : use outfile.xml as output file (otherwise uses
       autodia -m [file|directory]    : use multiple output files split by file or directory
       (creates an autodia-files directory containing files)
       autodia -O                     : output to stdout
       autodia -l language            : parse source as language (ie: C) and look for appropriate
       filename extensions if also -d
       autodia -t templatefile        : use templatefile as template (otherwise uses
       autodia -S                     : silent mode, no output to stdout except with -O
       autodia -h                     : display this help message
