Latest Version: 2.4.1

Python package "CppHeaderParser"

Purpose: Parse C++ header files and generate a data structure representing the class

Author: Jashua Cloutier

Licence: BSD

External modules required: PLY

Quick start:

#include <vector>
#include <string>
using namespace std;

{
public:

    /*!
     * Method 1
     */

    /// Method 2 description
    ///
    /// @param v1 Variable 1
    ///
    int meth2(int v1);

    /**
     * Method 3 description
     *
     * \param v1 Variable 1
     * \param v2 Variable 2
     */
    void meth3(const string & v1, vector<string> & v2);

    /**********************************

     *
     * @return Return value
     *********************************/
    unsigned int meth4();
private:
    void * meth5(){return NULL};

    /// prop1 description
    string prop1;
    //! prop5 description
    int prop5;
};

        public:
            OmegaClass();

            string omegaString;
        };
    };
}

int sampleFreeFunction(int i)
{
    return i + 1;
}

int anotherFreeFunction(void);
}
