Example Class Documentation

This page will try to give an example of some of the most commonly used commands and techniques for documenting your code using doxygen. The corresponding source file can be found below.

For the generated documentation page see DocumentationExample .

* \brief This is a class for showing how to document your code using doxygen.
* The more detailed description is needed for some more elaborate description. Here you can describe
* anything anyone might ever want to know about your class. Of especial interest might be to mention
* what it can be used for or what its main purpose is. If you want you can even use pictures (you migth want
* take a look at the doxygen documentation for that).
class DocumentationExample
  * \brief A constructor.
  * A more elaborate description of the constructor.
  * \brief A destructor.
  * A more elaborate description of the destructor.

  * \brief Casts the char at position number to an int and returns it
  * This function will take an int number and a char pointer name, then will try to access the int a position number
  * and cast it to an int and return it. No verification is done within the function to ensure, that it is a valid
  * position.
  * @param number The position of the char to be cast. This should never be below 0 and not above the length of the char
  * array.
  * @param name A constant character pointer.
  * @return The char value of the charakter at position number casted to int
  int ExampleCastCharToInt(int number, const char *name);

  * \brief Tests whether an integer is within the bounds of a string
  * This will perform a check whether an int is bigger than an arbitrary zero and smaller than the length of the string.
  * @param itsAString The string to be checked as reference
  * @param theInt The position to be checked for
  * @exception std::out_of_range parameter is out of range.
  * @see zero()
  * @return True if character is in range, should never return false but throw an exception instead.
  bool TestWithin(std::string itsAString, int theInt) throw(std::out_of_range);

  * \brief The public definition of zero
  * This variable is used to determine what will be regarded as zero.
  int zero;
