Question ID: 784355
I'm looking for a software documentation creator.  This software must
do all of the following:

1. Pull data directly from a software requirements package
2. Pull data from use-cases
3. Pull documentation from inside code

Combine all of this information into a document such as Word or .PDF.

The software should do this automatically.  I link it to the files and
it pulls the data.  I know programs exist that do one or two of the
above, but I need something that does all three.
There is no answer at this time.

Hi drew2000,

You can test doxygen[1]. Doxygen is a documentation system for C++, C,
Java, Objective-C, Python, IDL (Corba and Microsoft flavors) and to
some extent PHP, C#, and D.

If you are working under Linux/Unix and if you have installed LaTeX,
you can generate PDF files on the fly.
