LinuxDoc HowTo

As you might already noticed, the LinuxDoc project has a focus on kernel-doc. Most of the documentation you will find here deal with this markup, its syntax, use-cases and tools. But that’s not all ..

The LinuxDoc project was founded at the time where the linux Kernel migrates its documentation from XML-DocBook to the plain text format reST (OT: if interested LWN article #692704 and LWN article #692705). In that context we also touched other topics. To name just two; the “Scalable figure and image handling” and the “diff friendly table markup”. All these and more topics are dealing with the same parent topic: The various aspects of documenting software developments and are incorporated into the LinuxDoc project.
