When perl output generated on the following example.c:

#define EXAMPLE (example)
/** \see EXAMPLE */
extern int example;

There is a confusing item in the output perl package:

doc => [
see => [
type => 'url',
link => 'example_8c_113b633378ea20dff6ff220caedb3e01d',
content => 'EXAMPLE'

'doc=>[...]' declared to array, but initialised with a hash 'see => ...'.
Perl can process it, hash will separated to key and value and will form an array [key, value] like this:

doc->[0] = 'see';
doc->[1] = { ... };

but it is formally incorrect, and hardly processable.

Tested with 1.5.9 windows build

Hi Laszlo,

I assume it is ok if the output is corrected as follows:

        detailed => {
          doc => [
              type => 'text',
              content => 'Some text '
              see => [
                  type => 'text',
                  content => 'EXAMPLE'

Should be fixed in the next subversion update.
