4 Scribbling Documentation

The scribble/manual language and associated libraries provide extensive support for documenting Racket libraries. The most significant aspect of support for documentation is the way that source-code bindings are connected to documentation sites through the module namespace—a connection that is facilitated by the fact that Scribble documents are themselves modules that reside in the same namespace. Getting Started with Documentation provides an introduction to using Scribble for documentation, and the remaining sections document the relevant libraries and APIs in detail.
