This is a utility which will run through PostgreSQL tables and returns HTML, DOT, and 2 styles of XML which describes the database. The HTML is human readable (via webbrowser). The first style of XML is actually the fileformat of Dia, a UML diagram tool. The second type of XML is similar to the HTML but in the Docbook 4 format. It enables you to mix in other docbook documentation via the XREFs, generating PDFs, HTML, RTF, or other formatted documents. Between these tools and JavaDoc with the appropriate XREFs, documentation about a project can be generated quickly and be easily updatable yet have a very professional look with some DSSSL work.
