Doco: Automatically generating documenation from source code

Date:

The task of writing documentation is often neglected due to the difficulties involved in maintaining it consistent with the underlying source code it represents. This creates a lack of information that is conflicting with the obstacles faced by developers, especially when they are trying to understand unfamiliar codebases. In this paper, we present doco, a tool that uses techniques from static and dynamic analysis in order to provide documentation in the form of pre- and post-conditions for functions in Java programs.
