For a code snippet like:


  • Functor to delete objects pointed by a container of pointers.
  • A typical usage might be like:
  • @code
  • list<Object*> l;
  • ...
  • for_each(l.begin(), l.end(), delete_object());
  • @Endcode
    struct delete_object
    void operator()(_Tp
    pointer) const
    delete pointer;

Previously (at least up to 1.8.0) Doxygen was able to generate the correct HTML/LaTeX output like:

list<Object*> l;
for_each(l.begin(), l.end(), delete_object());

1.8.5 generates:

  • list<Object*> l;
  • ...
  • for_each(l.begin(), l.end(), delete_object());

Confirmed. This is an unfortunate regression in 1.8.5.
Should be fixed in the next GIT update.

This bug was previously marked ASSIGNED, which means it should be fixed in
doxygen version 1.8.6. Please verify if this is indeed the case. Reopen the
bug if you think it is not fixed and please include any additional information
that you think can be relevant (preferrably in the form of a self-contained example).
