And mdoc(7) indeed is more cryptic than the C++ groff actually
uses, only even more narrow-minded and not even capable to
document C interfaces easily. A highly academical yay! on
«recursive descendent parsers are capable of anything you
deserve!» but without giving any answer to the peculiarities of
documenting programs and programming interfaces. About a decade
after GNU info (blindly trusting a faded memory) and likely in
light of an increasingly interwoven surrounding, and if its only
the actual costs of airplane tickets, phone calls, modem lines or
personal computer hard- and software. Much is missing.
That is no excuse for learning that language though.
