Software specification documents
It is important that you should determine what information is needed to be included in software specification documents. You can also use different kinds of manuals for reference as well. These manuals will give you a complete look about previously written documents. From user interfaces to programs and from different codes to testers, you will able to find all the specific information in those reference manuals.
Key writing factors
While writing different software documentation for technical users, you should consider some very important factors. There will be significant key files within different applications as you should mention in the documents. These are primarily files created by the software development team. Database of specific software along with other utility programs are also very important to mention in the software technical documentation. You should also mention in the documentation about functions and subroutines ranging from input to output values. Along with these important factors, you should also mention the different things involved in disc based applications and different modules of a specific software.
Separating documentation from program
It all depends upon you that how you separate the documentation program within the specific code. You should also mention in the documentation about the source code and functions, subroutines, variables and constants.
The appropriate documentation tool must be chosen with great care. There are different tools which are used in software technical documentation which you should decide upon based on your particular needs and the reader's compatibility.
