There's as much difference between the jobs of programmer & coder as there is between programmer & technical writer. If documentation is poor it's because the shop producing the code didn't bother to hire a tech writer. If documentation is plain wrong then it's likely they didn't bother to hire a programmer. They can get by without hiring a coder but production will suffer-as it will if they try to get by without hiring a tech writer while insisting the programmer 'do his job'. The programmer probably can write good documentation if given time-but a tech writer's time is a lot cheaper.
