This is a minor bug. I was using @ref to add a link to a file of example. But in the generated html, it looked like a class function (file_name.extension).

To reproduce this problem, I used the test example (shown below)

/** A Test class.

  • More details about this class.
  • See example @ref example_test.cpp

class Test
/** An example member function.
* More details about this function.
void example();

void Test::example() {}

/** \example example_test.cpp

  • This is an example of how to use the Test class.
  • More details about this example.

The output looks like this

Detailed Description
A Test class.

More details about this class.

See example example_test::cpp <- THE PROBLEM!!!
