IDLdoc 3.3 has been released! To download, head over to idldoc.idldev.com. New features in this release are:

1. Created tutorial and reference manual documentation.

2. Added embed directive to embed SVG or other graphics formats. For the “latex” comment style, .svg will be replaced with .pdf.

3. Directory overview comments can be picked up from a .idldoc file in each directory. Tags include private and hidden to control the level of visibility of the directory and its contents, as well as author, copyright, and history.

4. Added ROUTINE_LINE_CUTOFFS keyword to control level of warning for number of lines in a routine (only used when STATISTICS is set). Set ROUTINE_LINE_CUTOFFS to a two-element array indicating the number of lines that needs to be exceeded before the routine has a warning or is flagged.

5. McCabe complexity computed for each routine when STATISTICS set. Added COMPLEXITY_CUTOFFS keyword to control level of warning for complexity. Set COMPLEXITY_CUTOFFS to a two-element array indicating the complexity that needs to be exceeded before the routine has a warning or is flagged.

6. Added a link in each routine’s details to its source code.

7. Improved rst markup style. Headings can be created by underlining with “=” (for level 1 headings), “-” (level 2), or “~” (level 3). Links can be done explicitly via

my website <michaelgalloy.com>


or looked up in the scope of the comment’s context, like

my_routine


Also, added title directive so that .idldoc files can have a separate title to display (instead of just their filename).

8. Added a preformatted markup style which is nearly equivalent to verbatim, but also makes HTML output respect line-breaks.

9. Added author, copyright, history, and version tags to the overview file.

10. Allow properties of a class to be marked as hidden or private in rst format.

11. Small changes to ensure compatible with IDL 8.0.

12. Miscellaneous bug fixes.
