FeinSoftware presents CommentMaker - development tool for Microsoft Visual Studio .NET (Visual C++).
(For information about fully customizable template-based version, please visit CommentMakerPro page.)
CommentMaker is a comment generation tool designed to work in Visual C++ under current versions of Visual Studio 2002 (7.0) and 2003 (7.1).
Every developer understands the need of properly documenting their code, but not all of us do it.
Common reasons are "not enough time", "too many other things to do", etc.
CommentMaker does some of the work for you. It creates customizable function header that you can adjust to most companies' documentation requirements.
For example, default settings of CommentMaker create function headers that are compatible with a popular document generation tool
Doxygen, which is used by many software companies.
The FeinSoftware's CommentMaker comes in the standard msi installation package.
The first time you start your Visual Studio after installing CommentMaker, new "Comment Maker" submenu will be added to your "Tools" menu with the following commands:
Insert Function Header

The toolbar with these commands will also be created.
To insert a function header, simple position cursor anywhere in the function body and invoke "Insert Function Header" command either from the menu or from the toolbar.
The comment block will be inserted right in front of the function definition, after all existing comments.
The content of the function header could be controlled from the "Content" page of the Comment Maker Options:
The commands could be customized from the "Commands" page of the Comment Maker Options:
