I have a question about Doxygen while I was using it.
I�m using mscgen in Doxygen.
In the latest version 1.8.3, there is an issue of ceasing when creating a document by using \msc \endmsc command.
This stops the process and document creation.
This didn�t happen in 1.5.7 version which I was using before.

Thank you.

I have the same / similar problem with the 1.8.3 version when \file and \msc are used in one file.
Doxygen Crashes.

The simple file file_msc_problem.h:
/*! @file file_msc_problem.h

  • @msc
  • pnt1,pnt2;
  • pnt1 => pnt2 [label="txt"];
  • @endmsc


I used a standard Doxyfile (just doxygen -u).

The problem does not occur in svn version 831 but first appears in svn version 833.

I have the problem on windows, I have not been able to test the problem on Linux
