As it is a well aware fact that, for any foundation, there has to be good documentation. API documentation likewise, serves as a quick reference for accessing the library or working within a program.

When we go through any such documents, it must consist of a proper plan, content source, proper layout or sketch for delivery, information related to each function, etc.

API documentation tools are:

  • JavaDoc
  • Doxygen

Enlisted below are the categories in which every function is being documented which mainly revolve around the parameters:

  • Function description
  • Sequence, syntax, and elements required for each parameter.
  • Syntax and type of error message that can occur.
  • Links related to functions.
