The attached .tar file contains a Doxyfile and a C++ example that demonstrates the problem.

With this settings


the anonymous namespace from the example file is extracted and a "@0" hyperlink is created in the namespace overview of the HTML documentation.

However this link is broken and leads nowhere.

I assume, if "EXTRACT_ANON_NSPACES = NO" is set, an anonymous namespace should never appear in the namespace overview.

This is a regression compared to Doxygen 1.8.0. There only namespaces "n1" and "n1::n2" appear in the namespace view. The anonymous namespace is not shown as expected.

doxygen version 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.

In Doxygen the anonymous namespace still shows up in the list of namespaces as "@0" even with EXTRACT_ANON_NSPACES set to NO. This is still a difference compared to 1.8.0, where it did not show up.

It is however no longer a link and can therefore not point to an invalid target
