5.7.2 Scripts to create documentation

Stripping whitespace and generating menus

Note: This script assumes that the file conforms to our doc policy, in particular with regard to Sectioning commands; a few files still need work in this regard.

To automatically regenerate @menu portions and strip whitespace, use:

scripts/auxiliar/node-menuify.py FILENAME

If you are adding documentation that requires new menus, you will need to add a blank @menu section:

@end menu

Stripping whitespace only

To remove extra whitespace from the ends of lines, run

scripts/auxiliar/strip-whitespace.py FILENAME

Updating doc with convert-ly

Don’t. This should be done by programmers when they add new features. If you notice that it hasn’t been done, complain to lilypond-devel.
