In short, Pascal Browser, or PAB for short, is a Windows application that can:
Just as its sibling product Pascal Analyzer, Pascal Browser will parse the
source code it finds and gather all sorts of information. This information is
used to create the document collection that describes the source code. The most
common use of Pascal Browser will probably be to create hyperlinked HTML documents.
Pascal Browser has deep knowledge of the source code, and understanding of how different identifiers are linked to each other. This knowledge can be used to generate a full documentation, but also to:
To generate documentation for a particular set of source code with Pascal Browser, you must first create a project. Do not confuse a Pascal Browser project with a Delphi project, they are completely different things. The project holds the options for how the code is handled, and lets you conveniently use separate options for different sets of source code.
Projects are saved as text files with the extension “pbr”, like for example a file with the name MyProj.pbr. The format of the files is equivalent to that of an INI file.
