mkd is a software application for extracting pre-encoded comments lines to generate software documentation according to the ISO/IEC 26514:2008 standard.[1] mkd is an abbreviation of make documentation. mkd was originally known as mkdoc.[2]


mkd is compilable 'as is' for Fedora (format of characters UTF-8) and has been intensely used with Red-Hat on PC, on SUN Sparc and HP-UX, up of the year 2000 in the ASCII format; The location of the directories was different from the current location (man, whatis, ...). The RPM packets are not distributed by the maintainers of mkd.

For Debian and Ubuntu systems, mkd is provided and distributed as ubuntu packages.[3]

mkd is, in principle, compatible with all Unix and Linux systems, except, sometimes, the location of the manuals and documentations directories.

mkd is also available for Microsoft Windows.[4][5]
