NAME

       edoc_extract - EDoc documentation extraction.

DESCRIPTION

       EDoc documentation extraction.

DATA TYPES

         edoc_env() = edoc_env() (see module edoc_lib):

         filename() = filename() (see module file):

         proplist() = property() (see module proplists):

         syntaxTree() = syntaxTree() (see module erl_syntax):

         t() = t1():

           Some  docs of t/0; Further docs of t/0. The same thing using -type: -type t() :: t1().
           % Some docs of t/0; Further docs of t/0.

EXPORTS

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

              Types:

                 Context = overview | package
                 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/4.  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::[comment() (see module edoc)], 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_module() (see module edoc)}

              Types:

                 ModuleName = atom()
                 [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_module() (see module edoc)}

              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/4. 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::[comment() (see module edoc)], File::filename(),  Env::edoc_env(),
       Options::proplist()) -> {ModuleName, edoc_module() (see module edoc)}

              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 | package
                 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/4.

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