[PERCEPS] synopsis: documenting IDL, C++, python, and may be more
18 Jan 2001 09:27:27 -0500
I stand corrected. You are correct, it was an insensitive post to make.
Clearly, there is always room for alternative development efforts. I had
high hopes for perceps when I first became aware of its existance but it
never panned out. doxygen, on the other hand, is here today and does an
incredible job. When sysnopsis matures, I will certainly give that the
once-over and see how it meets my needs. Until then, good luck to all!
