    Hi all,

    i was wondering if there was a way to automatically create documentation that looks like the stuff in the help files for objective c

    for those of you who know java you'll know what i'm talking about.. something similar to javadoc

    M$ visual studio has an equivalent to javadoc as well (haven't used it though) so i figured xcode should be able to do it somehow as well...

    i'm not entirely sure what i should be searching for on the net to find out how this is done...

    Yep. Use Doxygen.

    You can download it here: http://www.stack.nl/~dimitri/doxygen/download.html#latestsrc

    and there is a helpful article on the Apple website about making Xcode documentation sets automatically within Xcode here:
