A tool for documenting Python projects

Epydoc is a tool for generating API documentation for Python modules, based on their inline documentation strings (docstrings). It produces HTML output (similar to the output produced by javadoc) and PDF output. Epydoc supports four markup languages for documentation strings: Epytext, Javadoc, ReStructuredText, and plaintext.
