A lightweight markup language called epytext can be used to format docstrings, and to add information about specific fields, such as parameters and instance variables.
Epydoc also understands docstrings written in reStructuredText, Javadoc, and plaintext. For a more extensive example of epydoc's output, see the API documentation for Python 2.4.
· Python 2.4
What's New in This Release:
· This version of epydoc can use both introspection and source code parsing to extract documentation information about Python modules, and it can combine information from both sources.
· This is important because each source has its own advantages and disadvantages with respect to the other.
