doxygen: Generate documentation using an existing configuration file.
$ doxygen ${path-to-config_file}
try on your machine

The command "doxygen" is used to generate documentation from source code comments. The "${path-to-config_file}" is a placeholder that represents the actual file path of the Doxygen configuration file.

In this command, the "doxygen" executable is invoked with the path to the configuration file as an argument. The configuration file contains various settings and options that control the behavior of Doxygen during the documentation generation process. By specifying the path to the configuration file, the command tells Doxygen which file to use as a reference for generating the documentation.

To use this command, you need to replace "${path-to-config_file}" with the actual file path of your Doxygen configuration file. For example, if your configuration file is located in the current directory and named "Doxyfile", the command would be: "doxygen ./Doxyfile".

This explanation was created by an AI. In most cases those are correct. But please always be careful and never run a command you are not sure if it is safe.
