SCons API

The API documentation is generated for each release by epydoc. The HTML source also includes links to the source code itself, which makes it a good way to poke around and familiarize yourself with the source code. NOTE: We only started generating this documentation with the 0.96.95 release, so it's likely that much of the text might reflect older, outdated versions of source code, and needs updating. If you find these sorts of things, please let us know by filing a bug report, or even submitting a patch yourself.
