After upgrade to 1.6.1 we get this new warning:

The documentation in the header is below, see that we have a "


  • @Class ACE_ARGV_T
  • @brief Builds a counted argument vector (ala argc/argv) from either
  • a string or a set of separate tokens. This class preserves whitespace
  • within tokens only if the whitespace-containing token is enclosed in

  • This class can substitute environment variable values for tokens that
  • are environment variable references (e.g., @c $VAR). This only works
  • if the token is an environment variable reference and nothing else; it
  • doesn't substitute environment variable references within a token.
  • For example, @c $HOME/file will not substitute the value of the HOME
  • environment variable.

Just adding a me too on this one, we have the same issue when building the Coin library. I've checked, and this works fine with Doxygen 1.5.9, but breaks with 1.6.1.

See for several examples of Doxygen breaking.

Confirmed. Should be fixed in the next subversion update.

This bug was previously marked ASSIGNED, which means it should be fixed in
doxygen version 1.6.2. Please verify if this is indeed the case and reopen the
bug if you think it is not fixed (include any additional information that you
think can be relevant).
