What is the best literate programming tool/environment/research work?
I'm building an IDE to support our next generation architecture at work, and believe a better documentation tool than NDoc would be nice.
When talking about documentation, the first thought that comes to mind is "literate programming". Currently I'm reading three of the four full-length books on the subject, I've already read the Literate Programming FAQ as well as Marc van Leeuwen's Literate Programming in C CWEBX manuscript.
I don't have time to endlessly evaluate prior art in this space, and was hoping there was a language guru here at LtU who knows a lot about this esoteric area of language research: making code more like english prose and the prose more like code, to the point of unifying codes and comments.
To be clear, the tool doesn't have to be called a "literate programming tool" to qualify as such! Even if it is only a partial idea for LP, if it is really cool and slick, then I want to demo it. A good example is Emacs' MMM-Mode.
I love examples! TIA
