"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I sugest to Doxygen.

Doxygen
Generate documentation from source code

Doxygen is the de facto standard tool for generating documentation from annotated C++ sources, but it also supports other popular programming languages such as C, Objective-C, C#, PHP, Java, Python, IDL (Corba, Microsoft, and UNO/OpenOffice flavors), Fortran, VHDL, Tcl, and to some extent D.

Just like Ivan post. But I want to do that manually.

Think you can use Doxygen with some configuration. That means that only part of the process will be "automatic".

I suggest to review Doxygen manuals to see how it can meet your requierement.

In http://sourceforge.net/ you will find other tools similar to Doxigen:

Docutils: Documentation Utilities, AsciiDoc - text based documentation, and so on.

Hope this helps.
