C++ test case file

When a function macro definition has a escaped new line character between the macro name and the macro argument list; doxygen parses the macro diffrently then the gnu C++ preprocessor cpp.


#define macroFunction
(var_a, var_b)
typedef int var_a####var_b####int

macroFunction(this, var);

doxygen preprocesses into this

#define macroFunction
00005 (var_a, var_b) typedef int var_a_var_b_int (this, var);

cpp preprocesses into this

typedef int this_var_int;

Confirmed. Should be fixed in the next subversion update.

Is there anything further I need to provide or do at this point?

no, just wait until the next subversion update (it will be announced on the user mailing list) and then verify if the issue is indeed resolved.
