Base class for RDoc markup formatters

Formatters are a visitor that converts an RDoc::Markup tree (from a comment) into some kind of output. RDoc ships with formatters for converting back to rdoc, ANSI text, HTML, a Table of Contents and other formats.

If you’d like to write your own Formatter use RDoc::Markup::FormatterTestCase. If you’re writing a text-output formatter use RDoc::Markup::TextFormatterTestCase which provides extra test cases.

Commenting is here to help enhance the documentation. For example, code samples, or clarification of the documentation.

If you have questions about Ruby or the documentation, please post to one of the Ruby mailing lists. You will get better, faster, help that way.

If you wish to post a correction of the docs, please do so, but also file bug report so that it can be corrected for the next release. Thank you.
