Created attachment 247837
Zip file containing configuration file and documented C++ source file

In the source code, I have

/// @copydoc A::operator--()
B& operator--() { return *this; }

Doxygen apparently translates the -- into an HTML – entity during the scan, because this error appears in the log:

doxybug.cpp:23: Warning: target A::operator& of \copydoc command not found

Then the documentation for operator-- is badly messed up. It ends up looking something like this:

B& B::operator-- ( )
