The library documentation for ‘pydoc’ expects that the ‘pydoc’ module will only ever be run as a command-line program. This ignores the general usefulness of several of the functions in that module when imported from the library.

The documentation should describe at least the following functions:

* pydoc.getdoc

* pydoc.synopsis

* pydoc.splitdoc

The following would be useful also:

* pydoc.classname

* pydoc.cram

* pydoc.allmethods
