Please describe the problem:
While generating the documentation for a Obj-C header file, the documentation build script, displays message like "More #endif's than #if's found" for headers which have #ifndef includes.
Verified that the #ifndef and #endif are balanced out.(This is not a compilation error, occurs only when the code has compiled fine and documentation generation starts)

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Try creating a documentation for a Obj-C header file with #ifndef statement

Actual results:
Error: More #endif's than #if's found is logged into to the documentation generation logs.

Expected results:
No Error logs.

Does this happen every time?

This mimimal header works fine:

#ifndef BLAH

So please attach an example header that allows me to reproduce the problem.

I'm not (and I would expect a million mails about this by now if this trivial example would not have worked ;-)

Are you using a custom input filter by any chance which removes the #endif?

No am not using any input filter.

This problem can be reproduced by adding this file.

Here is an example file that fails. Note that adding a label to the @cond command fixes the problem.

/// @file

#if !defined NabSystem_h
#define NabSystem_h

/// @cond
#if defined _MSC_VER

#if !defined(SILLY_MS_STUFF)


/// @endcond

#endif // NabSystem_h

Hi John,

Which version of doxygen did you test this with? 1.7.4 or older?

Using 1.7.4. It also happened with older versions. I'll attach the doxyfile.

Thanks John. The problem you reported should be fixed in the next subversion update.

This bug was previously marked ASSIGNED, which means it should be fixed in
doxygen version 1.7.5. Please verify if this is indeed the case. Reopen the
bug if you think it is not fixed and please include any additional information
that you think can be relevant.
