Function/Procedure Summary Document for Delphi code

I was shown an application by my boss that took a piece of Java code and presented as a document a summary of the methods (i.e. functions and procedures) within each class, along with a commented summary of what each method does. The comment was just an ordinary comment but one that had been tagged specifically for such use.

Does anyone know of a Delphi equivalent to this? Might be external or even within Delphi for all I know. I have Delphi 7 and now Delphi 2007.

I think that D2006 supports auto-generation of documentation.
it creates html with diagrams and stuff like this.

You might want to evaluate CodeHealer and run your code through that as well.

imitchie: thanks, that one looks good, pole position so far. Unless ziolko can snatch away the enormous sum of points on offer by answering the following:

ziolko: any idea how to find auto-generation of docs if it IS in native Delphi?

Sorry, took a while to close this. Ziolko, by "native" I meant "already in Delphi", sorry I took too long to respond. Anyway, hopefully won't have to use any of this doc stuff. Points to imitichie.
