  • Add Custom Content to Your Help Documentation

    For the last several years, I've made more and more of my living via entrepreneurial pursuits.  I started my career as a software developer and then worked my way along that career path before leaving fulltime employment to do my own thing.  These days, I consult, but I also make training content, write books, and offer ...

  • GhostDoc Says the Damndest Things

    Editorial note: most of the GhostDoc bloopers below are a history, but they provide for a good laugh. We encourage you to share the GhostDoc goofs you have encountered – they are great for entertainment as well as give us a chance to improve the product. Some years ago, I was doing work for some client or another.  Honestly, I ...

  • You Can Use GhostDoc's Document This with JavaScript

    If you haven't lived in a techie cave the last 10 years, you've probably noticed JavaScript's rise to prominence.  Actually, forget prominence.  JavaScript has risen to command consideration as today's lingua franca of modern software development. I find it sort of surreal to contemplate that, given my own backstory.  ...

  • GhostDoc - Customizing Generated Method Header Comments

    Last month, I wrote a post introducing you to T4 templates.  Near the end, I included a mention of GhostDoc's use of T4 templates in automatically generating code comments.  Today, I'd like to expand on that. To recap very briefly, recall that Ghost Doc allows you to generate things like method header comments.  I ...

  • Intro to T4 Templates: Generating Text in a Hurry

    Today, I'd like to tackle a subject that inspires ambivalence in me.  Specifically, I mean the subject of automated text generation (including a common, specific flavor: code generation). If you haven't encountered this before, consider a common example.  When you file->new->(console) project, Visual Studio generates a ...

  • Elements of Helpful Code Documentation

    If you spend enough years writing software, sooner or later, your chosen vocation will force you into reverse engineering.  Some weird API method with an inscrutable name will stymie you.  And you'll have to plug in random inputs and examine the outputs to figure out what it does. Clearly, this wastes your time.  Even if ...

  • Generate Documentation from Your Build

    Before I get down to the brass tacks of how to do some interesting stuff, I'm going to spin a tale of woe.  Well, I might have phrased that a little strongly.  Call it a tale of corporate drudgery. In any case, many years ago I worked briefly in a little department, at a little company that seemed to be a corporate drudgery ...

  • What's in a Name? Spelling Matters in Code

    Think back to college (or high school, if applicable).  Do you remember that kid that would sit near the front of the class and gleefully point out that the professor had accidentally omitted an apostrophe when writing notes on the white board?  Didn't you just love that kid?  Yeah, me neither. Fate imbues a small ...

  • Comments in Clean Code? Think Documentation

    Notwithstanding some oddball calculator and hobby PC hacking, my first serious programming experience came in college.  A course called ''Intro to C++'' got us acquainted with arrays, loops, data structures and the like.  Given its introductory nature, this class did not pose a particularly serious challenge (that would come ...
