       GSDoc - GNUstep XML documentation format


       GSDoc  is  an XML language designed specifically for writing documentation for the GNUstep
       project. In practice, that means that it is designed for writing about  software,  and  in
       particular, for writing about Objective-C classes.


       The  GSDoc  markup language is defined by an SGML DTD, that specifies the tags that may be
       used in marking up a GSDoc document, and how and where  those  tags  may  be  placed.  The
       reader  is  encouraged  to  consult  the  DTD  directly  on  any  points  that  the  other
       documentation leaves unclear. The DTD is stored  under  GNUSTEP_SYSTEM_LIBRARY/DTDs  in  a
       standard  GNUstep  installation...  where GNUSTEP_SYSTEM_LIBRARY is defined in the GNUstep
       configuration file (GNUstep.conf).


       GSDoc may be written by hand, but it is primarily autogenerated  from  Objective-C  source
       files  by  a  tool called autogsdoc.  See the man page for that tool for more information.
       This tool also converts GSDoc into HTML for viewing.  In  the  future  it  is  planned  to
       convert the XML into HTML, texinfo, man page, and other formats using XSLT.


       The primary documentation source for GSDoc is the GNUstep system HTML documentation, under
       the Tools section.  In  a  standard  GNUstep  installation  this  should  be  found  under
       GNUSTEP_SYSTEM_DOC/Developer/Tools...   where GNUSTEP_SYSTEM_DOC is defined in the GNUstep
       configuration file (GNUstep.conf).


       autogsdoc(1), GNUstep(7)


       The GSDoc format was developed for GNUstep based on the earlier GDML SGML language.
