A multi-platform open source automatic document generator that supports C, C++, Java and IDL and has output support for HTML and TeX. It was used a bit on OS/2 around the turn of the century as it compiled cleanly by using the EMX toolkit, but even though it officially supports only Microsoft Windows, Linux and Solaris it has such a generic use of programming interfaces that in general it compiled on anything that had a reasonable POSIX support and a GCC port including not only most UNIX systems but also DOS (emx), BeOS and OS-9.
It is getting on a bit in years and has not seen any updates in more than a decade but is functional and considerably smaller than many better supported tools of a similar ilk.
