VB.NET, Web Services and Documentation

[ #13162 ]

VB.NET is a poor language lacking POD.

But since .NET Web Services can have a description tag, I can put HTML links in these and point to HTML pages, it requires a lot of work to write docs in HTML, but at least it is better than nothing - and you could say that the docs follow the code...

  • HTML? Why? (Score:2, Insightful)

    Remember, you can still write your docs in POD, and use pod2html(1) ...
    • Yes, I am thinking about writing a POD parser for VB.NET so I will end up with autogenerated HTML :)
      • Isn't it 'just' a question of embedding POD in the .vb files, as VB comments? That way, the VB compiler will ignore it, and pod2html will already ignore anything not in =pod sections...
        • Exactly :)

          The hard part is getting people to write docs, that is a language and platform independent problem, even though Perl programmers seem to be easier to convince, perhaps this is due to the obfuscative nature of Perl?
