FAQ: Documentation

Getting Documentation

Where can I find Mono documentation?

Mono documentation can either be viewed on line or off line using the GTK# or console based documentation browsers.

Why do I read “Documentation for this section has not yet been entered.” everywhere?

The mono documentation is just like the rest of mono very much based on the contribution of users. But unlike the actual code, documentation is not often contributed, therefore lots of the documentation is missing.

Where is the documentation for System.X.Y namespace?

You can find them on the .NET Framework API reference website.

Writing Documentation

How can I document my own code?

A good article on how to create documentation can be found under: Generating Documentation

How can I write documentation for the base class libraries?

At the moment only by using the GTK# documentation browser. Monodoc Editing has a short tutorial on how to do so.
