Minimalistic sample code


  • Project a writes tag file.

  • Project b uses tag file of project a

  • Project b uses WARN_NO_PARAMDOC = YES

  • Fully doxed class A lives in Project a

  • class B lives in project b and inherits A

Running doxygen with project b, the following warning is displayed:
tagfile_a.tag:1: warning: parameters of member A::a are not (all) documented

Which is:
a) not true
b) already strange, as A::a is an int, not a function (has no parameters!)

Sample project:
Sample as described above is attached, including diff output of
the two doxygen ini-files against default doxygen file:

  • unpack
  • run "doxygen doxyfile_a.ini"
  • run "doxygen doxyfile_b.ini"

Greets, Alex (....we love doxygen, thank you!)

This bug was previously marked ASSIGNED, which means it should be fixed in
doxygen version 1.8.14. 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 (preferably in the form of a self-contained example).
