C/C++ Automatic Manual Generation.

Does there exist a tool for managing C/C++ software
development and C/C++ software documentation simultaneously?

I am especially thinking of maintaining the consistency
between a C/C++ API (Advanced Programming Interface) and
its UNIX-like manual (see UNIX man function) documentation.

Ideally, I would seek an automatic manual generator from
C/C++ to Word with the ability of managing software development and software documentation simultaneously,
invloving a documented C/C++ software standard.

Check out c2man at:
http://www.idiom.com/free-compilers/TOOL/C-37.html

Also cxx2html at
ftp://aips2.cv.nrao.edu/pub/aips++/RELEASED/cxx2html

You may be able to get src2doc from the author
http://badger.parl.com/modsim/Src2Doc/Src2Doc.html

And if this is not what you had in mind, you may check out
commercial tools. I have good experience with Rational
(http://www.rational.com). Their Rose CASE tool supports round-
trip development, so the design diagrams are kept in sync with
the code. They also have a documentation tool called SoDA, but I
haven't used it.

This answers my need. However, how would you see ASCII or
TeX to Word automatic translation?

Thanks very much,
Thierry.
