Is there a way to get result of doc command as an HTML/XML object?

1 view (last 30 days)
Can we get the result of doc command in an object instead of displaying it as an HTML.
For example -
obj = doc("mean")
Here 'obj' is an HTML/XML object.

What are you hoping / planning to do with such an object? What's your use case?

For a given help text about a class or function -
I would like to extract only the Help text but in a structured form, so that I could easily interpret that help text about function, properties etc.

As of now, the "doc" command does not return any kind of object and hence there is no result to store.

No. 'help' returns the help text and can be stored as well. Check this-
k = help("timefun")
I am expecting something like this for 'doc' as well!
