LyX, as mentioned before. I am not aware of a better application of the same
kind. Open Office does not impose structure so I definitely would /not/
recommend it for this particular task.

In LyX, once once you have written your text, e.g. an API and/or explanatory
notes, go to "Insert" in the top menu -> "Lists & TOC". Plenty of stuff to
play with in there... TOC's are dynamically built based on the structure
you define as you compose the document. Indices are also generated based on
the data you supply.
