Does anyone have opinions about doxygen style comments?  Would
help document the APIs and libraries?

i'm not particularly sure if it would a) help and b) make stuff more readable
at the moment we have some files and/or functions documented by comments. these could be used. but it does scatter information more in the system. we got a fine set of manual pages (sect 2, 3, 9) and doing doxy means either

a) drop man and just do doxy or
b) duplicate documentation work

but i'd really like to see (at least important) interfaces (in the kernel) to be documented in a way that a clever editor could use to show arguments (ok, there might exist something based on header files) with comments etc (that for sure doesn't exist yet). so attaching information to the interfaces would be great, we just should pay attention not to [goto list1].


Actually, doxygen generates man pages.
