FuseDocs (programming)

FuseDocs is a program definition language created by Hal Helms in the late 1990s.

In its original form, FuseDocs used a proprietary vocabulary to define the responsibilities, properties, and I/O of code module in the ColdFusion programming language. In its second form (2.0), FuseDocs uses an XML vocabulary. In essence, FuseDocs forms a sort of work order, telling the programmer everything needed to write the module, and nothing more. A Fusebox architect is responsible for creating the FuseDocs for an application. A DTD for FuseDocs is available at fusebox.org.[1]

Although FuseDocs was so named because of its creation within the Fusebox community, it is also used by developers who do not employ Fusebox as an application framework.
