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


Erlang R13B04 or greater


    git clone git://
    cd erldocs

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. The documentation will be output to "doc/erldocs".


Calling erldocs with one argument will changes the output directory to the one specified in the argument.

./erldocs docs/alternate_location

Calling erldocs with multiple arguments changes both the destination of the generated documentation and the source of the documentation.

./erldocs path/to/erlang/otp/lib/edoc doc/edoc_docs

Source arguments can use wildcards.

./erldocs path/to/erlang/otp/lib/* doc/otp_docs
