VisDoc integrates a smart processor to parse class files - you don't need to prepare or rewrite your classes. Even if you don't use doc comments, you can generate handy class documentation.

VisDoc generates html documentation from ActionScript 2.0 class files.

Class relations mean everything. VisDoc links superclasses and their methods to give a quick overview how classes are connected.

Flexibility is built in: documentation pages are formatted with editable templates (XSL and CSS). Just customize to have your own layout and style.

Changed some classes? Start up the application and hit the Process button - VisDoc remembers all your settings from the last time.

Here are some key features of "VisDoc":
Parses methods, properties, class type, superclasses, interfaces
Parses "get" and "set" methods as property variables; recognizes cases when get and set use different variable types
Parses Javadoc-style comments, with additional tags
Links superclasses and interfaces
Links inherited methods and properties from all superclasses
Processes multiple documents, multiple folders
Resolves included scripts, recursively
Recognizes duplicate files (duplicate class paths) - only uses the newest
No additional markup needed: @class, @method and @property tags are not required
Support for html formatted text inside doc comments
Clean designed layout of documentation
... with scalable font sizes
... fully customizable, based on XSL
... skinnable with CSS
... default output is XHTML strict, W3C validated
XSL and CSS are editable within the app
Optionally generate index page (frameset) with Table of Contents
... set custom index page title
Optionally add prefix to files
Optionally save as xml
Adds modification date class file
Adds creation date documentation.

One of four generated documents will be printed in reverse order.

What's New:
Added to preliminary support for running VisDoc from the command line, the option to run .visdoc files.
