Hi all,

why doesn't mcs generate XML documentation?

The following command just generates mytest.dll:

  mcs -t:library -doc:mytest.xml *.cs -out:mytest.dll

I use standard documentation comments like these:
/// <summary>
/// bla bla
/// </summary>
/// <param name="param1">
/// bla bla
/// </param>
/// <remarks>
/// bla bla
/// </remarks>

Then, another question: We are porting some .NET projects to 
Mono on Linux (we intend to use Mono as our standard development
framework), and I would like to know how can I generate
documentation like the one generated by hcc.exe on Windows
(hcc.exe generates either compiled or HTML documentation from
the XML files generated by csc.exe when the "-doc" option is

Is there something similar to hcc.exe (Help Compiler Workshop)
for linux?
