To some degree -- yes. But texdoc is for use by humans, at least by
humanoids. Meanwhile recently I was forced to deal with several pieces
of web-based software definitely written by non-humanoid
methane-breathing aliens for to be used by their ilk. One of them
"BlackBoard" is "feature-staffed" -- tons of features and none is
properly implemented :-)
