build reference xml from code comments?

June 2, 2013 | 3:19 pm

Does anybody know a way to build reference xml directly from the comments inside the code? (for instance in the main() function: attributes, methods…) Some sort of "doxygen" for Max reference pages…

[Otherwise: which is the simplest way to build reference xmls?]

Thanks,
Daniele

Automatically generated references could be a significant saving in time !

Can someone tell us where to find the "_ref.xml files found in the ‘edits’ folder" (at the top of all references files)

Thanks,
Eliott.

Hi Eliot.

I’ve done a little script myself today.
I’ll be more than glad to share it with everybody, as soon as I’m sure it’s rather stable :-)

For what I’ve seen today, there’s no _ref.xml file at all, but you can take and modify any of the .maxref.xml files you can find in the Max 6.1 folder.
