[Development] Qdoc || !Qdoc

?You can use either doxygen or qdoc, but the two have different command sets, so they aren's interchangeable.

If you want your documentation to link to the Qt documentation, it might be easier to use qdoc. I'm not sure that's correct, because I haven't actually used doxygen for that purpose, but I know you can link to Qt documentation using qdoc.

?Thanks for the fast response! I'm going to have a look to the documentation.
Just to be totally sure: your answer implies that, as an external user of Qt (not a developer), it is now advisable to switch from Doxygen to qdoc, right? Or using qdoc is only suggested for Qt APIs?
Thanks again,
