If you add #!/usr/bin/python at the beginning of your python script, the functions are not documented.

Take the documentation example:

"""@Package docstring
Documentation for this module.

More details.

def func():
"""Documentation for a function.

More details.

class PyClass:
"""Documentation for a class.

More details.

def __init__(self):
    """The constructor."""
    self._memVar = 0;

def PyMethod(self):
    """Documentation for a method."""

This example works and the "def func" function is documented. Now just add #!/usr/bin/python the "def func" function is not documented and there's no "package" mention in the documentation.

This is certainly a side effect of the first # in #!/usr...

Hi Pascal,

I failed to reproduce this with the example you described, i.e. adding the #!/usr/bin/python did not make any difference. Can you please attach a self-contained example (source+config file in a tar or zip) that allows me to reproduce the problem?

I have generated the documentation with doxygen v1.7.3 on windows host with the doxyfile.txt file provided.

Warning: You have just to change the INPUT = to generate the required documentation.

Changed version 'latest' to '1.8.2-SVN' so I can remove 'latest' as an option as it is a moving target.
