Automation with fpdoc is not always a good thing. I have already
created a command line tool which generates a documentation build
script for fpGUI, by scanning the source and xml directories -
matching up files. I soon found out that the order of units are
important to fpdoc - otherwise you end up with broken links in the
generated documentation.

Well, that information must be somewhere, because the CodeTools can
find all units, include files etc. for a specific platform.

I believe the lazde project was simply a clone of fpde - to make it
compilable with LCL. I don't think fpde has been maintained in years.
