Solution : Error opening map file *.map for inclusion in the docs! +doxygen +eclipse

This problem is due to Short Names tag

set the Short Names tag to YES and things will be fine.

- Mihir Patel


Instruction:

1. Open the Doxygen file
2. Search for the SHORT_NAMES (ex. you would find SHORT_NAMES = NO)
3. change the NO to YES
4. Save the File and run the doxygen again.

if you are using the GUI window then you need to reload the Doxygen file. by file > Open and open the doxygen file with the updated settings.

  3. I don;t think this is a bug. although changing the default parameter can solve this.

    I will try to report it.

    Thanks for the suggestion.

  9. you saved me as well. I did a
    grep -i "short" Doxyfile
    and found
    SHORT_NAMES = NO

    after replacing it, doxygen finally worked.

  10. where can I find the "Short Names" tag so I can change it? I'm looking in the "Expert" tab of Doxywizard the doxygen GUI. mnay thanks,

  11. Under Expert->"Project" tab, there's a check box called "SHORT_NAMES". This box, disabled by default, should be *checked*.

  14. For me it worked only after I have set:

    FULL_PATH_NAMES = NO
    SHORT_NAMES = NO

    Hope this helps someone...

  15. Very awesome. Only comment is that you can be fully helpful or snippy helpful. Fully helpful is set SHORT_NAME to true AND where to set it...

  18. Seems like the Doxygen guys are having a look and they might have fixed it.

    Hopefully that will save every once time.

  22. i had the same problem and none of the above worked, but it was solved after i typed "dot -c" in the windows command line.

  23. Thanks a lot!!

  24. Good!! But the real problem is different. changing the tag will just name the file differently. So next time you ran that you found its working. You could delete the entire doc folder as the error message said. It would have solved the problem.

    After doing the above also; if you are facing the problem, then try setting the path (environment variable). Once you are done . IT will work. At least worked for me ;).
