As emerged as an idea during the discussion of FS#299, an SDL / POV-Ray editor feature would be useful that allows API documentation via formal comments, e.g. in include files:

 * Creates a car object.
 * @param a
 *        description of param a
 * ...
#macro car(a,b,c)

In addition to the ability of (auto-)generating a documentation file from such comments, an editor window feature would be convenient that allows popup display of a macro’s (object’s / parameter’s / ...) documentation section.

This task depends upon

This might be more suited for an external tool (at least to start with). Once that external piece of software has become mature and stable enough, integration into the POV-Ray GUI might be a next step.
