NAME

makekdedoc -- Generates HTML documentation for KDE libraries using KDOC.


SYNOPSIS

        makekdedoc [--rule-file=<rulefile>] [--libdir=<libdir>]
                [--outputdir=<outputdir>] [--url=<url>]
                [--srcdir=<kdelibs src dir>]
                [--kdoc=<path to kdoc>] [<library>...]
        makekdedoc --help


DESCRIPTION

This is a perl script that uses KDOC to generate documentation for kdelibs. A ``rule'' file is used to figure out the libraries to document, the order in which to document them and the libraries with which each one will be cross-referenced (eg kdeui uses -lkdecore). See FILES for more info.

NOTE: The script assumes that you have already generated a Qt cross-reference using qt2kdoc[1].


OPTIONS

Defaults for each option are in square brackets.

library...
Specify the libraries to document. By default, all libraries defined by the rule file are documented.

--outputdir <path>, -d <path>
The directory where the output will be written. [`cwd`/srcdoc]

--url <url>, -u <url>
The base URL by which the generated docs will be accessed. For example, if your web server is configured to use $HOME/public_html for your home page, you could set the outputdir to $HOME/public_html/srcdoc and the url to http://myhost/~mylogin/srcdoc. [output dir]

--rule-file <path>, -r <path>
The path to the rule file to use for generating the documentation. [<srcdir>/kdoc.rules]

--libdir <path>, -L <path>
The directory in which the KDOC cross-reference files are stored. [$KDOCLIBS if set, otherwise $HOME/.kdoc]

--kdoc <path>, -k <path>
The path to the kdoc program. [kdoc]

--kdocopt <options>, -p <options>
Extra options to be passed to kdoc.

--srcdir <path>, -b <path>
The path to the kdelibs source, eg ``$HOME/baseline/kdelibs''. [`cwd`]

--help, -h
Quit with a usage message.


EXAMPLES

        makekdedoc --srcdir $HOME/baseline/kdelibs 
                --outputdir $HOME/public_html/src/kdelibs/
                --url "http://www.ph.unimelb.edu.au/~ssk/src/kdelibs";


FILES

Rule file
This file lists the directories in the source directory to document. It also lists the files to document from each directory, and the libraries with which to cross-reference the generated documentation. Here is a small example that documents two libraries and links the second to the first.
        # makekdedoc rule file
        doc_MODULES = eenie meenie
        # rules for eenie
        eenie_FILES = *.h
        eenie_LIBS = -lqt
        # rules for meenie
        meenie_FILES = a.h b.h
        meenie_LIBS = -leenie -lqt

In this example, all files in eenie/*.h will be documented then two files from meenie/ will be documented, in the order declared in doc_MODULES.
