-- Showing off Colon mode.
-- If you hate @ tags, you can use colons. However, you need to specify colon
-- mode explicitly -C or --colon, or `colon=true` in the config.ld. Be careful
-- not to use a colon followed by a space for any other purpose!
-- So the incantation in this case is `ldoc -C colon.lua`.

-- module: colon

--- first useless function.
-- Optional type specifiers are allowed in this format.
-- As an extension, '?T' is short for '?nil|T'.
-- Note how these types are rendered!
-- string: name
-- int: age
-- ?person3: options
-- treturn: ?table|string
function one (name,age,options)

--- implicit table can always use colon notation.
person2 = {
    id=true, -- string: official ID number
    sex=true, -- string: one of 'M', 'F' or 'N'
    spouse=true, -- ?person3: wife or husband

--- explicit table in colon format.
-- Note how '!' lets you use a type name directly.
-- string: surname
-- string: birthdate
-- !person2: options
-- table: person3
