Description Bertram Felgenhauer 2005-09-16 19:42:17 UTC
It would be nice to be able to specify a list of additional declarators for
function declarations that are ignored by gtkdoc. Example:

cairo_public int
cairo_version (void);

Right now, gtkdoc gets confused by the cairo_public and produces no useful
documentation at all.

The attached patch implements such a feature. I freely admit that it's tailored
for the current usage in cairo; it does not handle additional declarators
between the type and the function, for example.

I see the need for a mechanism like this. Patch looks okay too. It will beome a bit messy if there a lot of decorators to ignore (long list).

Damon what do you think? Should we commit.
Especialy before next release?
