F# XML Documentation

In F#, you can produce documentation from triple-slash (///) code comments. XML comments can precede declarations in code files (.fs) or signature (.fsi) files.>

There are two ways to write xml documentation comment.

One is to just write code in triple slash comment, and Second way is to use xml tags.
