I tried to parse pygame/examples/liquid.py with --parse-only and got the following error:

$pydoc --parse-only --debug examples/liquid.py
Error: Internal error during parsing (/home/mu/Branches/pygame/examples/liquid.py, line 63):

I guess that has something to do with the source code at the bottom, but the parser should fail not that hard on that.

    When I combine the two document blocks, it works fine.

    There is a patch at https://github.com/JonnyJD/epydoc-m/issues/3

    epydoc-m is a maintenance fork, since the original author seems to be unavailable for now.

    The patch is in the master and stable branches of the fork.
