The GENERATE_... tags are all of the type 'bool' (YES / NO) with the exception of GENERATE_TAGFILE. The later one is of type 'string' and when set the value is used as file name. In case of the usage of the value 'No' this results in a tag file with the name 'No'

Proposed change:

  • GENERATE_TAGFILE = -> as it is at the moment
  • GENERATE_TAGFILE = -> as it is at the moment
  • GENERATE_TAGFILE = NO -> warning an there will be no tag file generated
  • GENERATE_TAGFILE = YES -> warning an there will be no tag file generated

The chosen solution with overwriting the option value is indeed an easier way.
Checked with my example and there is no tagfile generated when I set GENERATE_TAGFILE to NO
