        A short summary then: the principal difference between
this class of tool and LP tools is that LP tools extract
code from documents, whilst the other kind of tool extracts
documentation from code.

        The effect of what appears to be, on the surface,
a subtle distinction is fundamental: LP requires a total
committment.Code extractors usually work on unprepared code,
though the results may not be pleasing.
