You found 6 books on how to modularize docs? My
research found only one book - and it only showed what
modularized docs should look like. It did not discuss
the important thing - the analysis approach involved.

Are these books like all the books on structured
writing that shout "Ya gotta have structure", without
giving any specifics as how to structure?

I can write "ya gotta cure cancer", that don't mean

Please tell me the titles of books that give specific
steps of the analysis involved. Please, no "Ya gotta
modularize" bookss. I have no time to hee-haw around.
