doxygen - Man Page

documentation system for various programming languages

Examples (TL;DR)


Doxygen is a documentation system for C++, C, Java, Objective-C, IDL (Corba and Microsoft flavors), Fortran, Python, VHDL 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]

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]

4) Use doxygen to generate a template file controlling the layout of the generated documentation:

doxygen -l [layoutFileName]

In case layoutFileName is omitted layoutFileName.xml will be used as filename. If - is used for layoutFileName doxygen will write to standard output.

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 - is used for extensionsFile doxygen will write to standard output.

7) Use doxygen to compare the used configuration file with the template configuration file

doxygen -x [configFile]

8) Use doxygen to show a list of built-in emojis.

doxygen -f emoji outputFileName

If - is used for outputFileName doxygen will write to standard output.

If -s is specified the comments in the config file will be omitted. If configName is omitted `Doxyfile' will be used as a default. If - is used for configFile doxygen will write / read the configuration to /from standard output / input.
