Example of the Elucidator document style

As the last LAML document style we take a look at the Scheme Elucidator style.

The elucidator document styles support a variant of literate programming for Scheme
in which we document the internal aspects of a program


  • Characteristics of the Scheme Elucidator:

    • The documentation and the program are shown in a two column layout with lots of links in between them

    • The documentation can either be defined using a simple, specialized markup language or via LAML expressions

    • The program source files are not affected by our documentation efforts

    • The Elucidator is language dependent

    • Most of the functionality of the Elucidator is replicated in Emacs, such that it is convenient to document a program during the process of program development
