edoc_extract ā€” 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(3), 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(3), 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(3), 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(3), 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.
