I'm trying to document the python package, and looking on the xml output.

It does document many classes/functions, but misses key elements, like:

  1. class JSONEncoder
  2. class JSONDecoder

Tried in v1.8.9, didn't work, updated today to the latest git and still bug occurs.

If you need any more info regarding this issue I'll be happy to provide.

  1. These classes and their methods don't appear in the HTML output as well.

  2. I've found a lead on where the bug is -
    if you remove the following lines of codes -
    and rerun doxygen, it does correctly output "class JSONEncoder" and its methods.

Hope it helps.

Again, if there's any more info or tests I can do to help, please let me know.

Problem looks like to be the double quote in a single quoted string, in this case in the definition of ESCAPE.

I've just pushed a proposed patch to github (pull request 372)
