# Application documentation¶

In Fortran versions of Clawpack-5, the main documentation page for an application is often found in a file named README.rst, which can be written using the markup language reStructured Text. This is the markup language used by Sphinx for all of the Clawpack documentation.

The README.rst file can be coverted into a README.html file by doing:

python $CLAW/clawutil/src/python/clawutil/convert_readme.py  This is also automatically done by the command: make .htmls  which also converts code files into html files for easy browsing. A list of code files in the directory is automatically generated by convert_readme.py and links inserted in README.html. ## Converting code to html with clawcode2html¶ The Python script$CLAW/clawutil/src/python/clawutil/clawcode2html.py is invoked by “make .htmls” (in applications directories having Makefiles).

This script does minor syntax highlighting by attempting to put comments in blue and adds a header at the top.
