Some -- not all -- technical writers do, indeed, read source code. I worked at
a job for five years (a defense subcontractor) in which I was required to read
assembly language source code to compile mil-std software documentation. In
the last five years, however, the ability to read source code has not been part
of my work...thankfully!!!!
