When parsing a certain Tcl file, I noted that the majority of Tcl procs did not show up in Doxygens html output. I did some experiments and could drill it down to the following:

proc foo {} {

if { ($classifier_state == {{bphy} } ) } { OK

    if { ($classifier_state == {{bphy} }) } { ;# NOK
            puts "this proc is always shown in html output"


proc bar {} {
puts "this proc is not shown in html output in NOK case"

Note the subtle difference between the two 'if' statements: there is an extra space character between a '}' and the ')' in the 'OK' case.

Albert ( investigated this phenomenon a bit further:

"What I do see is that an error is emitted saying:
Error 1184 .../some_notok.tcl() at line 2! expected word separator:
A quick test disabling the error message (setting the internal variable myWhite to 0) did have the effect that the foo function is shown, but as I don't know the background of the space requirement I cannot change it."

Albert advised me to file this bug.

Confirmed. Should be fixed in the next GIT update.

This bug was previously marked ASSIGNED, which means it should be fixed in
doxygen version 1.8.8. Please verify if this is indeed the case. Reopen the
bug if you think it is not fixed and please include any additional information
