13.1.2 Doc Snarfing

In addition to init snarfing (see Init Snarfing with guile-snarf), the libguile sources are also subject to doc snarfing, by programs that are included in the distribution (but not installed at this time). The output is the file guile-procedures.txt which is installed, and subsequently used by module (ice-9 documentation).

Here is a list of what does what according to libguile/

Note that for guile-1.4, a completely different approach was used! All this is rather byzantine, so for now NO doc snarfing programs are installed.

[fixme: Document further once doc snarfing is tamed somewhat. -ttn]
