PasDoc is a documentation tool for the Object Pascal code (as implemented by FreePascal and Delphi). Documentation is generated from comments found in the source code and from external files.


Download stable PasDoc releases at Sourceforge download page.

You can watch our news page to be notified about the new releases.


See WhereToPlaceComments, WritingDocumentation and SupportedTags for information on how to document your source code.

Available output formats are HTML, HtmlHelp, LaTeX, Latex2rtf, SimpleXml. More output formats may be added in the future.

Check out the CommandLine to get a better feeling for how PasDoc works. There is also a GUI interface, see PasDocGui.

Check out PasDocAutoDoc and ProjectsUsingPasDoc to see some real-world examples of how documentation generated by PasDoc looks like, and to see some programs that use PasDoc’s code.
