documentation: 4 types


    There is a secret that needs to be understood in order to write
    good software documentation: there isn’t one thing called
    documentation, there are four.

    They are: tutorials, how-to guides, explanation and technical
    reference. They represent four different purposes or functions,
    and require four different approaches to their
    creation. Understanding the implications of this will help improve
    most software documentation - often immensely.
