Super long requirements document which is just not feasible for small scale projects with a single developer or even a small team. It would take more time to gather the information for this document than to complete some projects.

https://www.atlassian.com/agile/requirements

Shorter example from Confluence (bitbucket/atlassian) - Don't have real problems with the structure of the requirements but I know from working with their software, it isn't very easy to work with to produce useful documentation. Which makes me leary of using them as a reference.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Product_requirements_document

Wikipedia page which is an overview for business project requirements. Can extract some basic attributes from this to use as a starting point but does little to answer today's question of how to quickly create project requirements for a small project.

Stack Overflow reference , has a sample : http://stackoverflow.com/questions/171653/examples-of-requirement-documents

Of course there's an IEEE spec for this : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_requirements_specification

Software requirements specification IEEE 830

Will just copy the example over :
