There are some documentation tools for C++ or C# module developers.

Doxygen: Best for generating cross-reference API reference documentation, but it is hard to author an online book (overview, tutorial, etc.)

Wiki: Best for writing online book (overview, tutorial, etc.) but it is hard to add links to every API functions.

Is there any combination of Docygen and Wiki thing?

    doxygen can generate a online book, see e.g. the doxygen documentation which is written in doxygen. This might look a bit harder but when a user / developer uses it already for the code the step is not that large and doxygen also supports, a part of, markdown.

Sphinx-Doc is a python tool for generating documentation from ReStructuredText files & python source but can be used with Breathe to interact with DoxyGen for processing C/C++ files.

The output from Sphinx can be any/all of HTML, LaTeX, PDF, etc.
