Welcome to the Linux Foundation Forum!




I have having some problem with Doxygen. I want to create the HTML website with digram. I have three files ( two .c files and a header file)

I have configured the Doxyfile from the following website http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/aix/library/au-learningdoxygen/

It create the html website but no diagrams. Then i install the graphviz on my fedora and again run the Doxyfile but again no images.

I am not sure what is worng, OR is the method i am following is all wrong.

Thank you in advance.

    Ok it worked now after following the exact settings from the following link http://www-scf.usc.edu/~peterchd/doxygen/

    I am also making the LaTex file, and the doxygen generate a latex folder including a makefile to compile all files together in a one piece but it's looks that the PDF file generated by it is broken.

    Any idea about this.

    Thank you :)
