Doxygen in C

Go back

You will use these not only in C but everywhere else, but I wrote C since they only got tested in C. This is a list of the tags you will use

Common tags

Most of the time, in the comment, you can add

  • \brief short desc: short description
  • ...: and/or a long description after all tags
  • \see ...: reference another tag, such as a file/type/... You can only have per line, but you can have as many of these as you want.
  • {@link ....}: same as see but can be used inside text such as in the middle of a sentence
 * \brief short description
 * \see file.h
 * \see file2.h
 * a long description having a {@link file.h}
 * and nothing more.
