I would like to know which documentation system you use to create the developer's guide or your MATLAB codes.

I already found 2 FEx utilities on this subject:

makehtmldoc to create easily HTML help pages from MATLAB codes.

I plan to try Doxygen which seems popular . Have you already tried it?

Do you know other tools which can extract comments from your codes to generate documentation?

Thanks for your feedback

Accepted answer

M2HTML: Documentation System for Matlab in HTML has been around and supported for a long time - long before the new OOP-system. It is definitely worth looking at.

The questions says that the documentation support of Matlab is not adequate for your needs.

I have tried files from Fex which use Doxygen but it requires a lot of stuff to install and some time to understand the mechanism. My favorite one will be M2HTML which is both easy and quick to run . The output is very nice if the source code has a M-file header . Nice features a with Graph, each HTML output file gives dependencies, parent functions ... Super! Thanks for your suggestion.

MATLAB Report Generator has a lot of options for HTML reports. It's not free, but obviously it's designed well for the job.

Also, an (impossible to remember) function:

I am using this function to make the help of functions of my own toolbox reachable from Help browser. It is the only aim of this feature I believe , it will not create HTML files from your code.
