There are many tools out there that will create API documentation automatically from the comments in your code. Doxygen is one that I have used a lot and also like a lot. It can extract documentation from many different languages, including C and C++, it works on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux, and it has a huge degree of configurability. It’s also open source. Check it out for your API reference documentation needs.

An Application Programming Interface (API) provides a logical interface to a piece of software and hides its internal details. This website is dedicated to a book on designing APIs for C++ and includes articles and links on API development.


The book is accompanied by a source code package that contains many of the examples in the text. Download it for free.
