Ruby Gem for parsing C++ header files. This library is based on Nokogiri ( and takes as input the xml files generated by Doxygen ( Parsing with Doxygen allows us to parse even a set of non-compilable include files. This is very useful in case you need to parse only a subset of a big library which won't normally compile because of being incomplete or needing further build configuration (e.g Makefiles, VS, SCons, etc). By using other tools which rely on a real C/C++ processor like gccxml or swig, you would normally get lots of compilation-related errors (which is undesired because we don't want to compile anything!!). Doxyparser is, in such cases, the lean alternative.
