Well I'm a great fan of good Doxygen comments - and you could use those with Quickbook to produce
some really smart docs.

This isn't usually possible because people don't start by writing the Doxygen comments, then the
code, so the prospect of going back writing the comments is too much to contemplate...

If you need help with setting this up, please ask - I've done this before. Once working it is
painless to write the text for introductions and tutorial in Quickbook.

 You can also use the snippets option to include (selected parts of) the example(s) in the text,
ensuring that the code shown has actually compiled and run.

I'll take a look at your example asap.
