       mdassembler - Compile documentation for use in monodoc browser

       mdassembler OPTIONS* DIRS+

       mdassembler  has	 been  obsoleted by mdoc(1).  See the mdoc-assemble(1)
       man page.

       mdassembler is a	program	that creates .tree and .zip files for  use  in
       the monodoc documentation browser.

       The  .tree  and .zip files are copied into monodoc's sources directory,
       and reside with a .source file which is	used  by  monodoc  to  specify
       where  the documentation	should be displayed.  The .source file's /mon-
       odoc/source/@basefile attribute specifies the filename prefix  for  the
       documentation  files.   This  must  be the same prefix as used with the
       --out parameter.

       --ecma The documentation	found within DIRS is in	the Mono ECMA documen-
	      tation  format.	See the	Mono ECMA Documentation	Format section

	      The documentation	found within DIRS is in	the ECMA Specification
	      documentation  format.  See the Mono ECMA	Specification Documen-
	      tation Format section below.

	      The documentation	found within DIRS is in	"error"	 format.   See
	      the Error	Documentation Format section below.

       --help Show program argument information.

       --man  The  documentation found within DIRS is in man page format.  See
	      the Man Page Documentation Format	section	below.

       -o, --out PREFIX
	      Specify the output file prefix.  mdassembler creates  the	 files and PREFIX.tree .

	      The  documentation found within DIRS is in "simple" format.  See
	      the Simple Documentation Format section below.

       --xhtml,	--hb
	      The documentation	found within DIRS is in	XHTML format.  See the
	      XHTML Documentation Format section below.

       The following documentation formats are supported:

   Mono	ECMA Documentation Format
       An XML documentation format with	one file per type.

       See the mdoc(5) man page	for more information.

   Mono	ECMA Specification Documentation Format
       This is not the format you're looking for.

       This  is	the format used	to represent the ECMA-334 (C#) standard	within
       monodoc.	 It is not used	to display class  library  documentation;  for
       class library documentation, use	the --ecma format.

   Error Documentation Format
       Used  to	 present detailed error	messages, and is used in monodoc's "C#
       Compiler	Error Reference" tree.	DIRS is	not a directory,  but  is  in-
       stead a configuration file, containing the XML:


       /ErrorProviderConfig/FilesPath  specifies where to look for files, /Er-
       rorProviderConfig/Match specifies the  filename	pattern	 to  look  for
       within  /ErrorProviderConfig/FilesPath,	/ErrorProviderConfig/ErrorNum-
       SubstringStart and /ErrorProviderConfig/ErrorNumSubstringLength control
       which  portion of the filename is used as the error number, and /Error-
       ProviderConfig/FriendlyFormatString controls how	the formatting/display
       of the node in the monodoc tree.

       For  each  file	found, it is converted to HTML with C# syntax coloring

   Simple Documentation	Format
       Converts	text files into	HTML by	translating each newline into an  HTML
       _br_ element.

   Man Page Documentation Format
       Converts	man pages into HTML for	display.

   XHTML Documentation Format
       Copies the XHTML	file as-is.

       To install your documenation for	use with monodoc:

       Create a	PREFIX.source file
	      with the contents:

	      <?xml version="1.0"?>
		<source	provider="FORMAT" basefile="PREFIX" path="PATH"/>

	      where  FORMAT  is	 the documentation format contained within the
	      PREFIX.tree file,	e.g.  ecma, or simple.	PREFIX is the basename
	      of  the  .tree and .zip files that mdassembler creates.  PATH is
	      the "path" in the	monodoc	tree that should contain the  documen-
	      tation.	See  the  @prefix@/lib/monodoc/monodoc.xml  file for a
	      list of PATH values (the //node/@name values).

	      See	also:

       Create your documentation
	      See also the monodocer(1)	man page, e.g.

		   monodocer -assembly:foo.dll -path:foo/en

       Assemble	the documentation

		   mdassembler --ecma foo/en PREFIX

	      Make sure	that you use the same PREFIX here as you did above.

       Install the documentation by using the command

		   cp PREFIX.source PREFIX.tree \
		   `pkg-config monodoc --variable=sourcesdir`

	      (Note  the  backticks  used  in  the  pkg-config command!)  This
	      copies the .source , .tree , and .zip  files  into  the  monodoc
	      sources directory, which will allow monodoc to display the docu-

       mdcs2ecma(1),  mdnormalizer(1),	mdoc(1),  mdoc-assemble(1),  mdvalida-
       tor(1), monodocer(1), monodocs2html(1)
