Doxygen の概要

The Doxygen package contains a documentation system for C++, C, Java, Objective-C, Corba IDL and to some extent PHP, C# and D. It is useful for generating HTML documentation and/or an off-line reference manual from a set of documented source files. There is also support for generating output in RTF, PostScript, hyperlinked PDF, compressed HTML, and Unix man pages. The documentation is extracted directly from the sources, which makes it much easier to keep the documentation consistent with the source code.

You can also configure Doxygen to extract the code structure from undocumented source files. This is very useful to quickly find your way in large source distributions. Used along with Graphviz, you can also visualize the relations between the various elements by means of include dependency graphs, inheritance diagrams, and collaboration diagrams, which are all generated automatically.

本パッケージは LFS-8.0 において正しくビルドでき動作することが確認されています。

Package Information

Doxygen の依存パッケージ




Graphviz-2.38.0, ghostscript-9.21, libxml2-2.9.4 (required for the tests), LLVM-4.0.1 (with clang), Python-2.7.13 or Python-3.6.2, Qt-5.9.1 (for doxywizard), texlive-20170524 (or install-tl-unx), and xapian-1.4.4 (for doxyindexer)

User Notes:

Doxygen のインストール

以下のコマンドを実行して Doxygen をビルドします。

mkdir -v build &&
cd       build &&

cmake -G "Unix Makefiles"         \
      -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release  \
      -Wno-dev .. &&


ビルド結果をテストする場合は make tests を実行します。

If you wish to generate the package documentation, you must have Python, TeX Live (for HTML docs) and Ghostscript (for PDF docs) installed, then issue the following command:

cmake -DDOC_INSTALL_DIR=share/doc/doxygen-1.8.13 -Dbuild_doc=ON .. &&

make docs

root ユーザーになって以下を実行します。

make install &&
install -vm644 ../doc/*.1 /usr/share/man/man1

If you have generated the package documentation, then the man pages are automatically installed, and you do not need to run the last install ... command.


-Dbuild_wizard=ON: Use this switch if Qt5 is installed and you wish to build the GUI front-end.

-Dbuild_search=ON: Use this switch if xapian is installed and you wish to build external search tools (doxysearch.cgi and doxyindexer).

-Duse_libclang=ON: Use this switch if llvm with clang are installed, to add support for libclang parsing.

Doxygen の設定

There is no real configuration necessary for the Doxygen package although three additional packages are required if you wish to use extended capabilities. If you need to use the language translation features, you must have Python-2.7.13 installed. If you require formulas to create PDF documentation, then you must have texlive-20170524 installed. If you require formulas to convert PostScript files to bitmaps, then you must have ghostscript-9.21 installed.


Installed Programs: doxygen, 任意ビルドとして doxywizard, doxyindexer, doxysearch.cgi
Installed Libraries: なし
Installed Directory: /usr/share/doc/doxygen-1.8.13

Short Descriptions


is a command-line based utility used to generate template configuration files and then generate documentation from these templates. Use doxygen --help for an explanation of the command-line parameters.


doxygen の設定および実行を行う GUI フロントエンド。


generates a search index called doxysearch.db from one or more search data files produced by doxygen. See, e.g.


is a CGI program to search the data indexed by doxyindexer.
