Random idea: what if we take C parser from cproc, extend it to store comments and then emit Man pages/Markdown/anything else from some more-or-less standard style of documentation. 🤔

I have been thinking about that too lately. Something like the stuff they have in Rust.

@Zeno Yep, something like Rust. But I would also like to see other formats like man pagers or Markdown (or just plain text?) to be available, whereas Rust as far as I remember only supports HTML

Last time I checked Rust only did html. It would be pretty nice if it could support some other formats, yeah
