NAME

doxygen - documentation system for various programming languages

DESCRIPTION

Doxygen is a documentation system for C++, C, Java, Objective-C, IDL (Corba and Microsoft flavors) and to some extent PHP, C#, and D.
You can use doxygen in a number of ways:
1) Use doxygen to generate a template configuration file:
doxygen [-s] -g [configName]
If - is used for configName doxygen will write to standard output.
2) Use doxygen to update an old configuration file:
doxygen [-s] -u [configName]
3) Use doxygen to generate documentation using an existing configuration file:
doxygen [configName]
If - is used for configName doxygen will read from standard input.
4) Use doxygen to generate a template file controlling the layout of the generated documentation:
doxygen -l layoutFileName.xml
5) Use doxygen to generate a template style sheet file for RTF, HTML or Latex.
RTF:
doxygen -w rtf styleSheetFile
HTML:
doxygen -w html headerFile footerFile styleSheetFile [configFile]
LaTeX: doxygen -w latex headerFile footerFile styleSheetFile [configFile]
6) Use doxygen to generate an rtf extensions file
RTF:
doxygen -e rtf extensionsFile
If -s is specified the comments in the config file will be omitted. If configName is omitted `Doxyfile' will be used as a default.
