+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug # 728740 +++

Please describe the problem:
XML_PROGRAMLISTING=YES copies the Unicode form feed character (U+000C) and maybe other "Noncharacters" from source file to XML output file. The XML files ar not valid and combine.xslt fails.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Launch DoxyGen (XML_PROGRAMLISTING=YES) with an input file that includes a form feed character (U+000C).

Example InvalideXmlOutput.h:
// xml parser error : PCDATA invalid Char value 12
/** briefdescription text

  • detaileddescription text
    class InvalideXmlOutput {}
  1. Generate XML output
  2. Launch Doxygen combine.xslt stylesheet on the output

Actual results:
Doxygen generates classInvalideXmlOutput.xml:

and combine.xslt fails

Expected results:
Doxygen should generate classInvalideXmlOutput.xml without the invalid Char value 12.

and combine.xslt should execute successfully.

Does this happen every time?

is located in first line of input file InvalideXmlOutput.h.

DoxyGen copies it to line 11 of XML output file _invalide_xml_output_8h.xml. Its located right after "".
