ocamaweb is a good solution too, but has at this stage not extension (xml  
configuration file) for all languages.
it works with MATLAB, awk, visual basic, SAS, etc (in fact, with languages  
having only line comments).
it is according to me a good balance between javadoc/doxygen tools (too  
close to code structure) and web systems (that need a compilation/tangle  
to produce code).
ocamaweb is widely used at miriad technologies for matlab documentations.
