You can combine Doxygen comments with the text part in Quickbook to provide an automatically produced C++ reference section, including descriptions of templates and macros, and also add an auto-index to produce really nice documentation.

You can also provide examples which have embedded comments to ensure that the examples code actually compiles and runs.

Contact me privately if you would like help to get started with this process.
