I would like to use (find) a very simple C src code doc generator (parser). The simpler, the better.

I have looked at Doxygen (also cldoc, codedoc, cweb, Natural Docs) and found them too complicated and they require special tags that are distracting.

Basically I would like to parse all comments before a function call and the functions definition. Ideally it would provide a file name and line number. Perhaps something close to header file format (with comments). We all know that using a header file will not work because many programs either lack header files or not all procedures are defined as a header.

If necessary I could write something pretty quick but I would prefer to support someone else's effort if it already exists.


    file: data.c  Line: 225

     *  input and does something
    *char input (
      *int destination,
      *int source,
      struct dbText strdata,
      char dbtype
