I come across ads here and there for these systems, marketed to
developers, which typically claim to find objects and comments in source
code (Java, C, C++), create some kind of documentation based on these
and output to RTF, HTML, HTML help.

Has anyone ever worked with systems like these, or had to write actual
user material from the output they generate? I'm wondering how useful
these systems might be for creating user documents. Especially if they
are outputting to help, it would seem that's what they are trying to do.
