GSDoc - GNUstep XML documentation format
GSDoc is an XML language designed specifically for writing
documentation for the GNUstep project. In practice, that means that it
is designed for writing about software, and in particular, for writing
about Objective-C classes.
The GSDoc markup language is defined by an SGML DTD, that specifies the
tags that may be used in marking up a GSDoc document, and how and where
those tags may be placed. The reader is encouraged to consult the DTD
directly on any points that the other documentation leaves unclear. The
DTD is stored under GNUSTEP_SYSTEM_LIBRARY/DTDs in a standard GNUstep
installation... where GNUSTEP_SYSTEM_LIBRARY is defined in the GNUstep
configuration file (GNUstep.conf).
GSDoc may be written by hand, but it is primarily autogenerated from
Objective-C source files by a tool called autogsdoc. See the man page
for that tool for more information. This tool also converts GSDoc into
HTML for viewing. In the future it is planned to convert the XML into
HTML, texinfo, man page, and other formats using XSLT.
The primary documentation source for GSDoc is the GNUstep system HTML
documentation, under the Tools section. In a standard GNUstep
installation this should be found under
GNUSTEP_SYSTEM_DOC/Developer/Tools... where GNUSTEP_SYSTEM_DOC is
defined in the GNUstep configuration file (GNUstep.conf).
The GSDoc format was developed for GNUstep based on the earlier GDML
