Thanks for the tips Mathieu and Frederik - I'm just looking to get the full documentation for RoboFab and RoboFont - and I thought generating it from the source would result in the most complete information on all the methods and attributes - one never seems to know if some needed bit has been left out of hand written documentation.
The makeDocumentation.py script does generate a well structured and color blocked "User Guide" in an HTML format. This can also be output to PDF and can be pretty useful. But of course the script is wagering that the source coder has included well written comments.
I was mainly looking for the new RoboFont specific techniques to replace the old FontLab ones, for example, to get at the glyph index:
print 'Glyph ID 4:', font.glyphOrder #THE ROBOFONT WAY
print 'Glyph ID 4:', font.glyphs # OLD FONTLAB WAY
I'm starting to get the hang of the RoboFont way and it seems pretty cool. But I do come up with questions. I tried to join the RoboFont forums a couple of times over the last year but did not get a reply from the sign up robot. If there is an alternative way to join, I would love to start participating in the RoboFont community. If you see this Frederik, maybe you can send me a suggestion on gaining access to doc.robofont.com/forums
