A doxygen configuration file and a code file that can help to see the bug.

Good morning:

On generated manpages the return section is incorrectly idented. I detected it both on Debian 6.0.0 and Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.

This is a pretty-printing bug, so it is not an important bug. Nevertheless, between the pretty-printing bugs, this is an important ones.

Steps to see the bug:
1.- Untargz the attachment in a folder.
2.- Go to the folder where you untargz the attachment.
3.- Run doxygen.
4.- Update the MANPATH environment variable in order to include the man generated directory. On bash, type "export MANPATH=$(pwd)/man:$MANPATH".
5.- Type "man main.c".
---> In the main function description you will see that the return section is placed on the same paragraph that the previous section.

Thank you for your attention and for your work.

Manuel L. Pereira García.

PATCH to have sections start at new line

Adjusted default value for m_firstCol of ManDocVisitor was set to TRUE, should be FALSE as otherwise each section would think it is already at a new line which is not necessarily the case.
