if @dot is used inside a group.


  • This appears to be different from Bug 525273
  • This is new in doxygen 1.6.2, it does not appear in doxygen 1.6.1


  1. Create a file test.h with this contents:

     /** \defgroup test Test
        digraph example {
             // nodes
             // edges
             A -> B
  2. Create an default configuration file using:

    doxygen -g

  3. In Doxfile, change the following settings:

    INPUT = test.h

  4. Run doxygen:


If test.h is located in D:/x23 you will get the following error message
(note the incorrect path D:/x23/html/D:/x23/html):

Error opening map file D:/x23/html/D:/x23/html/ for inclusion in the docs!
If you installed Graphviz/dot after a previous failing run,
try deleting the output directory and rerun doxygen.

Confirmed. Should be fixed in the next subversion update.

This bug was previously marked ASSIGNED, which means it should be fixed in
doxygen version 1.6.3. 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.
