Using triple-slash comments in C++ in conjunction with LaTeX formulas or inlined DOT graphs does not work. The triple slashes are not removed from the code passed to the LaTeX and DOT parsers.

For example, the following comment:

/** A formula.

  • \f[
  • x^{2} +
  • y^{2}
  • \f]

Will generate the correct formula, i.e. x2+y2 (with appropriate superscripts).

But the following:

/// A formula.
/// \f[
/// x^{2} +
/// y^{2}
/// \f]

Will not. It generates the following instead:


I encountered this problem in release 1.4.6-NO. The problem does not exist in release 1.4.5.
