Doxygen Magically Turns Source Code into Documentation
Doxygen is not quite magical, though it comes close. To use it, you simply document your program with good comments in a form that Doxygen understands. Doxygen then parses the code and comments and transforms them into nicely formatted output files. Using comments as documentation keeps everything in one place, making life easier for hard-working coders.
Doxygen also has the ability to extract the code structure from uncommented source code files, which is a wonderful thing when you’re trying to understand strange code (including your own). Doxygen understands the code; it is much more than just a another set of formatting tags.
Let’s roll up our sleeves and use a simple example C file to show how Doxygen works. It is traditional for beginning developers to start by creating a “Hello, World!” program, and who are we to break tradition? Create a directory to store your project files and save this code as hello.c:Read More...
If I were a Coder... I think I'd like this one!:)
