TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
First, a general question for everybody, then stratagems for you:
Doing a quick Google search for the phrase "how to write API
documentation" revealed a whole bunch of API generators implemented in
C, C++, Java, etc. Does anyone have a feel for how useful these
automatic generators have proven for developers?
Whenever you have a question, the TECHWR-L archives are probably the
better bet than Google (or whatever your preferred flavor of search
engine). The subject matter you're looking for is already far more
focused than in a generalized Web search.
