A cross-referencing OCamldoc HTML documentation generator


Cross-referencing OCamldoc generator

This OCamldoc HTML documentation generator adds support for cross-referencing between online library references (which must also be generated by OCamldoc). It adds three new tags, @xrefv, @xreft, and @xref:

@xrefv Name:Module.valueName *text*

@xreft Name:Module.typeName *text*

@xref Name URL

The text may contain the marker %s, which will be replaced by a hyperlink that points to the online documentation for the specified type or value. If the text does not contain %s, the link will be prepended to the text.

The following references are available by default:

If no name is specified, the OCaml standard library will be used.


@xrefv Array.map For further details: %s.

For further details: Array.map.

@xreft Pervasives.in_channel For further details: %s.

For further details: Pervasives.in_channel.

@xrefv Bat:BatList.map %s for further details.

@xrefv OCaml:List.map for further details.

@xref lacaml http://mmottl.bitbucket.org/projects/lacaml/api
