* Donald Knuth created much for us, including TeX and a Literate Programming system called CWeb which helped to make C code documented in what he envisioned for Literate Programming

** A more generalized system that is based on CWeb is NoWeb--useful not just for C/C++ code but for every language: Recommend using NoWeb for Literate Programming: "NoWeb — A Simple, Extensible Tool for Literate Programming":


"As of 28 June 2018, the current supported version is version 2.12." {Author recommends against NOWEB 3.x}

I just add more sections/headings, sometimes tagged as :noexport:

If need be, I add code-snippets with examples there.

I feel that that’s the simplest way to do it.
