Hi Dave,

We're using Doxygen to create our API Reference but we're not crediting it
anywhere, we probably should. We used to ship all the tools we used to
create our API Reference with the SDK so customers were able to build their
own, however we've stopped doing this and we haven't had any customers
asking why we've done this.

Doxygen has made our life a lot easier. The docs are with the code meaning
that when the code is updated the docs are as well. Anyone can update the
docs. The docs can be built at any time.

After extracting the source code comments with Doxygen we use HTML Help
Workshop to create a chm.

Hope this is useful.

Subject: Doxygen question

To any Doxygen users out there:

When shipping doxygen created API references to customers, do you mention
the fact that they were created with doxygen? Or even how the API references
can be rebuilt with doxygen if the customer decides to modify the
"doxygen-tagged" source code that they are given? How much credit do you
give Doxygen?

We're having this discussion at our office as we determine how to
incorporate doxygen into the development process. The "proof of concept"
work done by the developers looks quite good; just needs a good proofing and
edit. But the scope and accuracy of information is nice.
