Doxygen allows for a variety of commenting styles. In order to maintain uniformity across the entire project the following rules should be applied:
For the Doxygen Style Guide look at [[C%2B%2B_style_guide#Doxygen]].
* For Doxygen comments use only {{codeline|//!}} and NOT {{codeline|/*! ... */}}
* Use {{codeline|@}} for any Doxygen Special Commands
An example  of properly used Doxygen would look like:
//! Comment with special command and syntax highlighting:
//! @code{.cc}
//! double v = 1.0;
//! @endcode

What is Doxygen ?

Doxygen is the de facto standard tool for generating documentation from annotated C++ sources [1]

Generating the Doxygen documentation for Octave

Doxygen documentation for Octave is easily generated from Octave sources. Instructions can be found in doc/doxyhtml/README.

Where can I browse the Doxygen documentation for Octave ?

Alternatively, you can access version specific Doxygen documentation:

What is the current status of Octave's Doxygen documentation ?

Very little Doxygen documentation is currently available in Octave's source code. Which is why "Doxygen documentation for the C++ classes" is listed in the Projects page of this wiki.

Doxygen Style Guide

For the Doxygen Style Guide look at C++_style_guide#Doxygen.
