Flex Version

Instead of pas2dox.pl, I have uploaded an initial c++ version, that uses flex and the QT library. This is because the perl script was getting a bit too complex and restrictive. I had a go with the RecDescent module, but didn't really make much progress with this either. The c++ version now handles function/procedure parameters so much better, now the following is possible :

function a ( x, ///< This is a parameter
y : integer ///< Here is another one
) : widestring;... read more
