Hi Janardhan,


That would be one option, lets call it option 1, I have another suggestion:


  1.  Markdown syntax with out commented individual lines.
  2.  Jdoc like syntax with annotations

Pros and cons

  *   1 Pros
     *   Easy Syntax most ppl know it.
     *   Easy to  implement.
  *   1 Cons
     *   Enables custom docs (everyone make their own distinct format again)
     *   No standard way of verifying correctness of the docs (correct parameter names etc.)
     *   No standard way of marking Input, return parameters.
     *   Requires modified Syntax with # at each line. where # normally means header in markdown
  *   2 Pros
     *   Easy Syntax Java ppl know it
     *   Standard way of making input
     *   Do not have to change any syntax at all from Jdoc
     *   Already supported syntax in DML
  *   2 Cons
     *   Harder to implement since one would have to look into java doc extraction and what
is needed to support that, maybe we have to make such a thing ourselves?

I personally like option 2 with Jdoc more and then extending into automatically parsing and
making the either markdown files or HTML files for the docs that you either way have to do
in option 1.

Best regards
Sebastian

Hi Sebastian, :)

Since the builtin DML files do not have full documentation yet, Can we
write
markdown syntax with the following heading in each dml file itself!

1. Function description
2. Usage
3. Arguments
4. Returns
5. Usage

After that, as you've mentioned can be parsed with only removing # at the
start of each line, and write
all this data to one `builtins-reference.md` file.

Thank you,
Janardhan
