Using Python in documentation generation automation

Recently I have been learning to use Python and Sphinx (http://sphinx-doc.org/index.html )to generate docs for my company’s user manuals. It is very easy to learn and good for the Python absolute beginners like me. In fact,  I have been browsing through Python’s 3rd party libraries trying to locate modules that are relevant for technical communication(text processing and image processing and so on). I wonder if you guys ever use computer programming language for your job?

    I’d say work towards having a good working knowledge of JavaScript, HTML, CSS, and XML. I have done some stuff with Python scripts for personal use, but never really had to use it for work. LaTex (though more of a markup language as well) is something else that has come up from time to time (for some more academic and scientific writing).

    It may be helpful to know how to run some SQL queries as well.
