:[Followups to dragonfly.docs]
:Just curious if anyone out there has started to create Doxygen (or
:similar) headers for the source. If not, I'd like to have a go at this.
:(I imagine that it'd make more sense to maintain a separate tree for
:such a thing right now -- I doubt that everyone would enjoy having to
:deal with merge conflicts.)
I don't think we want to integrate document generation into the source
code. The problem is that you can't get too wordy without making the
source unreadable, and the result are usually definitions so sparse as
to be useless for understanding any serious API.
For example, this is doxygen'd but the result is fairly useless for
any serious programmer.
I am not adverse to having document-generating co-files, though,
to describe kernel interfaces.
