/** Main application settings provider.
This object implements `GBApplicationStringsProviding` interface and is used by `GBAppledocApplication` to prepare application-wide settings including factory defaults, global and session values. The main purpose of the class is to simplify `GBAppledocApplication` class by decoupling it from the actual settings providing implementation.

/// @name Behavior handling
/* Indicates whether undocumented classes, categories or protocols should be kept or ignored when generating output.
If `YES` undocumented objects are kept and are used for output generation. If `NO`, these objects are ignored, but only if all their members are also not documented - as soon as a single member is documented, the object is included in output together with all of it's documented members.
@warning *Note:* Several properties define how undocumented objects are handled: `keepUndocumentedObjects`, `keepUndocumentedMembers` and `findUndocumentedMembersDocumentation`. To better understand how these work together, this is the workflow used when processing parsed objects, prior than passing them to output generators:
1. If `findUndocumentedMembersDocumentation` is `YES`, all undocumented methods and properties documentation is searched for in known super class hierarchy. If documentation is found in any of the super classes, it is copied to inherited member as well. If `findUndocumentedMembersDocumentation` is `NO`, members are left undocumented and are handled that way in next steps.
2. If `keepUndocumentedMembers` is `NO`, all parsed objects' members are iterated over. Any undocumented method or property is removed from class (of course any documentation copied over from super classes in previous step is considered valid too). If `keepUndocumentedMembers` is `NO`, all members are left and if `warnOnUndocumentedMembers` is `YES`, warnings are logged for all undocumented members.
3. If `keepUndocumentedObjects` is `NO`, all undocumented classes, categories and protocols that have no documented method or property are also removed. If `keepUndocumentedObjects` is `NO`, all objects are left in the store and are used for output generation and if `warnOnUndocumentedObject` is `YES`, warnings are logged for all undocumented objects.

@property (assign) BOOL keepUndocumentedObjects;
/* Indicates whether undocumented methods or properties should be processed or not.
If `YES`, undocumented members are still used for output generation. If `NO`, these members are ignored, as if they are not part of the object. Note that this only affects documented objects: if an object is not documented and none of it's members is documented, the object is not processed for output, even if this value is `YES`!
@warning *Note:* This property works together with `keepUndocumentedObjects` and `findUndocumentedMembersDocumentation`. To understand how they are used, read documentation for `keepUndocumentedObjects`.
@see keepUndocumentedObjects
@see findUndocumentedMembersDocumentation
@see warnOnUndocumentedMember
@property (assign) BOOL keepUndocumentedMembers;
/** Specifies whether undocumented inherited methods or properties should be searched for in known places.
If `YES`, any undocumented overriden method or property is searched for in known super classes and adopted protocols and if documentation is found there, it is copied over. This works great for objects which would otherwise only show class documentation and no member. It's also how Apple documentation uses. Defaults to `YES`.
@warning *Note:* This property works together with `keepUndocumentedObjects` and `keepUndocumentedMembers`. To understand how they are used, read documentation for `keepUndocumentedObjects`.

/** Indicates whether categories should be merges to classes they extend or not.
If `YES`, all methods from categories and extensions are merged to their classes. If `NO`, categories are left as independent objects in generated output. This is the main categories merging on/off switch, it merely enables or disables merging, other category merging settings define how exactly the methods from categories and extensions are merged into their classes.
Default value is `YES` and should be left so as this seems to be the way Apple has it's documentation generated.
@warning *Important:* Only categories for known project classes are merged. Categories to other framework classes, such as Foundation, AppKit or UIKit are not merged. In other words: only if the class source code is available on any of the given input paths, and is properly documented, it gets it's categories and extension methods merged! Also note that this option affects your documentation links - if any link is pointing to category that's going to be merged, it will be considered invalid link, so it's best to decide whther to merge categories of nor in advance and then consistently use properly formatted links.
@see keepMergedCategoriesSections
@see prefixMergedCategoriesSectionsWithCategoryName
@property (assign) BOOL mergeCategoriesToClasses;
/** Indicates whether category or extension sections should be preserved when merging into extended class.
If `YES`, all the sections from category or extension documentation are preserved. In such case, `prefixMergedCategoriesSectionsWithCategoryName` may optionally be used to prefix section name with category name or not. If `NO`, category or extension sections are ignored and a single section with category name is created in the class.
Default value is `NO`. If you use many sections within the categories, you should probably leave this option unchanged as preserving all category sections might yield fragmented class documentation. Experiment a bit to see what works best for you.
@warning *Note:* This option is ignored unless `mergeCategoriesToClasses` is used.
@see prefixMergedCategoriesSectionsWithCategoryName
@see mergeCategoriesToClasses
@property (assign) BOOL keepMergedCategoriesSections;
/** Indicates whether merged section names from categories should be prefixed with category name.
If `YES`, all merged section names from categories are prefixed with category name to make them more easily identifiable. If `NO`, section names are not changed. The first option is useful in case end users of your code are aware of different categories (if you're writting a framework for example). On the other hand, if you're using categories mostly as a way to split class definition to multiple files, you might want to keep this option off.
@warning *Note:* This option is ignored unless `mergeCategoriesToClasses` and `keepMergedCategoriesSections` is used. The option is also ignored for extensions; only section names are used for extensions!

Although appledoc still generates output in current directory, it's better to warn the user as in most cases this is not what she wants (for example if appledoc is invoked from Xcode build script, current working directory might point to some unpredicted location). appledoc also writes the exact path that will be used for generating output.
Note that in case documentation set is installed to Xcode, setting output path is irrelevant as all files from output are moved to locations Xcode uses for finding documentation sets.

/** Replaces all occurences of placeholder strings in all related values of the receiver.
This message should be sent once all the values have been set. It is a convenience method that prepares all values that can use placeholder strings.

This method provides application-wide string placeholders replacement functionality. It replaces all known placeholders with actual values from the receiver.

- `$PROJECT`: Replaced by `projectName` value.
- `$COMPANY`: Replaced by `projectCompany` value.
- `$VERSION`: Replaced by `projectVersion` value.
- `$YEAR`: Replaced by current year as four digit string.
- `$UPDATEDATE`: Replaced by current date in the form of year, month and day with format `YYYY-MM-DD`. For example `2010-11-30`.
