Hi there,
thanks all of you for the valuable tips.

@Jacob: help2man I didn't see, but sounds easy for a small tool.

I had spotted pod2man, but wasn't sure how much it is still bound to Perl 

Basically they all sound very reasonable, including straight ROFF.

My point was to see what - and if - there is a modern standard using something 
else, since I can start afresh and would like to create something which is 
well maintainable, possibly easy to export and fits well into the bigger 
context and widely used.

It appears that the landscape here is diverse.

Thanks for chiming in and giving me informed feedback.

Best wiishes,
