Yes, there is.  That is called Haddock, the documentation tool similar
to Javadoc and Doxygen.  Since it parses the same source code as the
compiler itself, and the compiler tends to change quickly, they both
come in the same package.  Disabling the documentation disables the
haddock tool, so the dependent Haskell Cabal packages cannot generate
their documentation.
