PHP Documentation Generator

PHP Documentation Generator is a Perl script similar to javadoc. It helps you generate a set of HTML pages from comments in PHP source files. Currently, this script parses the PHP source code to detect the objects attached to the comments.

            phpDoc and phpDocumentor (and other tools as docxp...)
            are very interesting and powerful. But they are written
            in PHP for PHP. Because I would not use PHP to run
            my scripts, and because this script will be used by my
            students, I wrote a generator in Perl (which is installed by
            default in a lot of systems - this is not the case of PHP).
            My contribution is new on this point: the script needs a Perl
            interpreter.

            Why another one?
            Looking at the PHP Documentation Generator home page left me unclear as to why we need yet another PHP documentation tool. We already have phpDoc (http://sourceforge.net/projects/phpdoc/), phpDocumentor (http://phpdocu.sourceforge.net/), and others as well. While phpDoc seems kind of dead (hasn't been updated since May, 2000), phpDocumentor is very much alive - and it works very well.
