I hear there's a program which writes the documentation for a particular piece of code.

Anyone know what its called or where I can find it

Hi Roberto,

Is it the Javadoc Tool you're looking for? It is a tool for generating API documentation in HTML format from doc comments in source code.

I believe you'll still have to write the javadoc comments yourself. The tool will use your comments to create an API looking html file I think (never actually used it myself).

If you follow the link that Joyce gave, there is plenty of information to get you started using this tool.
