Acidentally putting a normal comment without spacing causes Doxygen to eat all
input it would seem, without warning?

int asub(
int xx,
int zz,
int aa )
{ // ....

Adding a simple space in there fixes the problem. I am assuming Doxygen should
see the trailing "/" after "/**" and back-track to a normal comment "/" "/" ?

Same as first attachment, this one compiles under CL too.

This will work in Doxygen, but failes under CL - sorry didnt check it. Please ref. to Example2 if you need a source that will compile onder Doxy and MSVC CL.

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).
