[ documentation, gpl, program ] [ Propose Tags ]

This tool aims to detect any common pitfalls that is often seen in documentation generated with Haddock, commonly caused by lack of familiarity with the markup or time to review the generated documentation. Extending this tool is rather simple (add parsers) and can be easily used to judge the impact of changing Haddock's parsing rules.
