edoc_extract(3erl) Erlang Module Definition edoc_extract(3erl)

NAME

edoc_extract - EDoc documentation extraction.

DESCRIPTION

EDoc documentation extraction.

DATA TYPES

EXPORTS

file(File, Context, Env, Opts) -> {ok, Tags} | {error, Reason}

Types:

File = filename()
Context = edoc_tags:tag_flag()
Env = edoc:env()
Opts = proplist()
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, Env, Opts) -> edoc:entry_data()

Types:

File = filename()
Env = edoc:env()
Opts = proplist()

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, Env, Opts) -> edoc:entry_data()

Types:

Forms = erl_syntax:forms()
File = filename()
Env = edoc:env()
Opts = proplist()

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, File, Env, Opts) -> edoc:entry_data()

Types:

Forms = erl_syntax:forms()
Comments = [edoc:comment()]
File = filename()
Env = edoc:env()
Opts = proplist()

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, Env, Opts) -> R

Types:

File = filename()
Env = edoc:env()
Opts = proplist()
R = {module(), edoc:edoc_module()} | {module(), edoc:edoc_module(), [edoc:entry()]}

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, Env, Opts) -> R

Types:

Forms = erl_syntax:forms()
File = filename()
Env = edoc:env()
Opts = proplist()
R = {module(), edoc:edoc_module()} | {module(), edoc:edoc_module(), [edoc:entry()]}

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(3erl), source/5, edoc:read_comments/2, edoc:read_source/2.

source(Forms, Comments, File, Env, Opts) -> R

Types:

Forms = erl_syntax:forms()
Comments = [edoc:comment()]
File = filename()
Env = edoc:env()
Opts = proplist()
R = {module(), edoc:edoc_module()} | {module(), edoc:edoc_module(), [edoc:entry()]}

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, Context, Env, Opts) -> Tags

Types:

Text = string()
Context = overview
Env = edoc:env()
Opts = proplist()
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.
