Hi
From using java and BlueJ i have found it quite easy to make your own api using inbuilt things in BlueJ. So i was wondering if there was anything in python that would take a python program and find all of the definitions and make an API from that, in which the API would have the arguments needed as well as the docstring and other comments.

So if anyone has heard of a tool that would do this that would be lovely,

cheers
Paul

The pydoc module (used by the function 'help') finds all definitions in a module and produces text or html documentation. I read that it does this by importing the module first and then using objects introspection. If you look at the code of pydoc.py in your standard library, you should find tools to extract the api from the module. This could be a good starting point, with a lot of work already done.

cheers grib that works a treat, i like the HTML making it does, thanks!
