This is the code used to generate documentation for erlang projects in the format of


Erlang R13B04 or greater


    git clone git://
    cd erldocs
    ./rebar get-deps

or download and place it in your $PATH


Calling the erldocs script with no arguments will generate documentation for the application in the current working directory. The documentation will be output to "doc/erldocs".


Additional arguments can specify the location to source files to be documented

./erldocs path/to/erlang/otp/lib/* path/to/erlang/erts

You can specify the output directory with the -o flag

./erldocs -o path/to/output path/to/erlang/otp/lib/* path/to/erlang/erts
