The Doxyfile that is generated by doxywizard differs from the Doxyfile that is generated by doxygen.

Steps to reproduce:
1) Generate the files
$ doxygen -g sampleconfig
$ cp samplefonfig generated
$ doxygen -u sampleconfig
$ cp sampleconfig updated
$ doxywizard sampleconfig (and Save)
$ cp sampleconfig wizard
$ doxygen -u sampleconfig
$ cp sampleconfig wizardupdated
$ doxywizard (Save as wizardgenerated)

2) Look at the differences
$ diff generated updated
-> No difference
$ diff generated wizard
-> Many differences, mainly whitespace
$ diff generated wizardupdated
-> No difference
$ diff wizard wizardgenerated
-> A few differences in the settings of some parameters

Expected behaviour:
- No difference in the configuration files

I've used the git SHA: 8cd4425a523965a5541d46a84828fb7e16f98bae, but older versions ( in Debian) also have this behaviour.

Thank you for the changes.

I did some tests with the current git version (SHA: bf8ecf7749d846a1f1b28ab01953ad55989b87a8)

Things have changed, but I still see differences.

$ diff generated wizard
-> Many differences, but they are only whitespace
$ diff wizard wizardgenerated

Created attachment 255679
Draft patch for making the whitespace identical

This patch contains 2 changes:
* convertToComment: the extra replace will make the empty comment lines contain just a hash, and not a hash and a space
* saveTopic: Not functional. It requires a new pure virtual function in the class Input : isNotEmpty. When a valid is empty, the writeValue method does not need to be called.

This patch can solve the whitespace differences that I see with
$ diff generated wizard

@doxygen doxygen added the doxywizard label Jul 19, 2018

I've just pushed a proposed patch, pull request #6538

See to it that line endings are correct and no extra white space (conform suggestions of Roland Clobus)
