In the Doxygen XML output, I noticed that I cannot end a sentence with a URL because the period is placed inside the hyperlink that Doxygen auto-generates.

For example, if I have the following sentence in the brief description of my source code...

For more information, see

Then the XML output interprets the sentence as ...

"For more information, see"

It should be:

"For more information, see"

Also, is there a way to prevent Doxygen from converting URLs into active hyperlinks? Sometimes I need to refer to URLs that don't exist (i.e. http://host:port) so I don't always want them converted. The only way, as far as I can tell, is to place the URL in quotations.

An other problem with hyper-linking is that when one uses file: followed by a this is also seen as the start of a hyper-link.

Created attachment 192918
Patch for "file:: and for ".: at end

This patch fixes the file: problem by specifying that a least one character has to follow the : (i.e replaced * in + in the definition of the URLMASK)

Created a new rule for the URL that matches the URL plus a "." but leaves this "." in the input stream.

Thanks Albert,

I'll include the patch in the next subversion update.

To prevent an automatic link to http://host:port, use %http://host:port
