      Description

      Want to be able to specify a root package on the command line and
      have javadoc traverse and generate docs for all subpackages.
      Would also need to be able to exclude packages and/or classes
      you want to skip over.

      Also known as "recursive descent" (or "recursively descend").

      I think I've probably got my wires crossed! What I was trying to say
      was that if you have a directory tree as follows:

      Halifax
          |----General
      |------HxDate
                | |-------HxData.java
                |
      |------HxInt
                | |--------HxInt.java
                |
      |------HxString
                | |-------HxString.java
                |
      |-------HxGeneral.java
                |
      |-------HxFile.java

      In which all files/classes belong to the package Halifax.General you
      would expect the following command to pick up all of the source files
      even the ones in the sub directories:

      Javadoc Halifax.General

      or at least.

      Javadoc Halifax.General.*

      Unfortunately it doesn't happen.
