Issue with nested ALIASES


In bug report 704172 ( ),
this issue has been set as resolved, but in our documentation, it still
poses issues.

We are currently using the latest release 1.8.5 of doxygen for TCL and C/C++.

This issue still seems to be happening:

  • when defining:

    ALIASES += apitest{2}="ARG0: \1 ARG1: \2"

  • with he following code documentation


    • \mainpage
    • \apitest{A, B \apitest{C, D}}

This ends up in

ARG0: A ARG1: B {C, D}

I tried various combinations of escaping '{', ',' and '}'
Always leading to similar output.

Can you verify this, it is getting a very urgent issue for us.

I attached a very basic test source.
( Doxyfile was generated with 'doxygen -g', I only changed the 'ALIASES' )

Thank you very much in advance!

Confirmed. Should be fixed in the next GIT update.

I verified the fix, also with "multi-layer" nesting.
