Within the Fldigi git repository is a script that generates a Doxygen interactive HTML website by analyzing the source code of Fldigi. Additionally, the tool cppcheck is run to check-for and report code issues. The cppcheck results are included on the Doxygen main-page. Currently these instructions only cover setup on Linux and OSX.
Please note: this code-analysis and documentation-generation time takes longer than compiling Fldigi and will require 2.0GB of free disk-space.
To successfully execute the fldigi/scripts/doxygen/gen_doxygen_docs.sh script a few programs must first be installed on the local system:
doxygen dot mscgen cppcheck
To check if these are installed run:
$ which doxygen; which dot; which mscgen; which cppcheck
This will return a list of where the binaries are installed:
/opt/local/bin/doxygen /opt/local/bin/dot /opt/local/bin/mscgen /opt/local/bin/cppcheck
If all 4 required programs are in the returned list, skip to Running the Script.
Otherwise continue with Setup
Execute the command below in a terminal window to install the needed support programs on Debian, Ubuntu, and Debian derivatives.
$ sudo apt-get -y install doxygen graphviz mscgen cppcheck
For Apple OSX systems, easiest way to install the required support programs on OSX is by using MacPorts. Execute the command below in a terminal window to install the needed support programs OSX (after installing Macports)
$ sudo port install doxygen graphviz mscgen cppcheck gitstats
Once the support programs are installed run the script fldigi/scripts/doxygen/gen_doxygen_docs.sh This will generate the Doxygen docs in fldigi/scripts/doxygen/HTML
$ cd fldigi/scripts/doxygen $ ./gen_doxygen_docs.sh run
After Doxygen generation and cppcheck analysis is complete, the script will attempt to open the main HTML page in the systems default web-browser. If for some reason this does not work, manually open the main-page file at fldigi/scripts/doxygen/HTML/index.html
To delete all files generated by the gen_doxygen_docs.sh script execute the “clean action”
$ ./gen_doxygen_docs.sh clean
