Since a long time I was wondering why CDT, the C++ support for the Eclipse IDE, doesn’t have a decent support for highlighting and creating comments in the Doxygen format. Today, while searching for customizable code templates per project, I found the setting to enable Doxygen support. It is located in the project properties at “C/C++ General”. Not that intuitive…
With this, Doxygen tags in comments are highlighted and comments with parameters etc. are generated automatically like in Java. What’s still missing is the auto-formatter support for these comments and tag-completion.
