Source and Doxifile file showing the problem

When we have a '(single quote) or " (double quote) in a normal Fortran comment (odd number of quotes), the Doxygen comment convert parser is broken.
When we have the source code (aa.f):
! A normal comment line with a ' (single quote) in it.

!> just a comment

And the alias MY_ALIAS defined as MY_ALIAS=some text one would expect the text
"just a comment some text" in the output, but just the text "just a comment" is shown and the error messages in the console output (twice): aa.f:4: warning: Found unknown command `\MY_ALIAS'

Some investigation lead to the statement:
[^"'!/\n\#\-]* { /* eat anything that is not " / or \n */
in commentcnv.l on line 264, here all characters are skipped till a quote (start of a string) in case of a non-comment line, but the normal Fortran comments are not recognized properly, only Doxygen Fortran comments are recognized.

In Fortran there is of course the problem that we have the ! comments, but in the fixed format also th C,c,*,! in column 1 (and excluding the ! in columns 6 as continuation character, but this is quite rare that this is used and error prone so we can forget this one in my opinion)

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

PATCH: handle single quotes in normal Fortran comment

Comment handling for Fortran (fixed and free formatted) has been improved so that when there is a single quote (' or ") in normal comment this is not breaking the handling of aliases etc.

Confirmed. Should be fixed in the next subversion update.
