ROOT Version: 6.22/02
Platform: CentOS 7
Compiler: GCC 4.8
Dear ROOT developers,
Thank you for a great feature you implemented recently: Multi-Python PyROOT to
use Python 3 and 2 with a single installation annonced in
ROOT Version 6.22 Release Notes.
I want to ask you some questions about ROOT documentation mechanism with Python
R seems to be able to convert documentation from roxygen (source code) to
console and even Jupyter. For instance I tested this tutorial:
Writing an R package from scratch | Not So Standard Deviations. After documentation build and package installation the comments from my demo package myFunction_6916762.tar.gz (744 Bytes) was correctly printed in the console:
$ R R version 3.6.1 (2019-07-05) -- "Action of the Toes" Copyright (C) 2019 The R Foundation for Statistical Computing Platform: x86_64-conda_cos6-linux-gnu (64-bit) [...] > ?myFunction::add
add package:myFunction R Documentation Add together two numbers Description: Testing add function documentation in bt_spn #20401. Usage: add(x, y) Arguments: [...] (END)
Does a similar mechanism exist in ROOT? A previous topic may indicate that this
wasn’t the case in May 2019: Python help function on ROOT class methods.
However I suppose ROOT may have new documentation features in recent releases.
Is Chapter: HTMLDoc an equivalent of R documentation mechanism?
It would be nice to have Doxygen documentation into Cling, Python and
