The 'functions' directive is not only for functions, but also works for
structs/unions. So the name is misleading. This patch renames it to
'specific', so now we have export/internal/specific directives to limit
the functions/types to be included in documentation. Meanwhile we improved
the warning message.

Agreed on "functions" being less than perfect. It directly exposes the
idiosyncrasies of scripts/kernel-doc. I'm not sure "specific" is any
better, though.

Perhaps "symbols" would be more self-explanatory. Or, actually make
"functions" only work on functions, and add a separate keyword for other
stuff. *shrug*

Seems like the patch is way too big. I'd probably add "symbols" (or
whatever) as a synonym for "functions" for starters, and convert
documents piecemeal, and finally drop the old one.

The scripts/kernel-doc change should be a patch of its own.

BR,
Jani.

I strongly agree with this.  'specific' IMHO, has no semantic value and
I'd rather just leave the only-sometimes-wrong 'functions' than convert
to something that obscures the meaning always.

My preference would be to use 'symbols'.  I tried to come up with something
but 'symbols' is better than anything I came up with.

Agreed on these two points as well.

Just adding my 2 cents.

structures aren't symbols though ... How about 'identifier'?

Maybe 'interfaces' or 'artifacts'. The term 'symbols' is just as
imprecise as 'functions'.

I suggested 'identifier' because that's the term used in the C spec (6.2.1):

: An identifier can denote an object; a function; a tag or a member
: of a structure, union, or enumeration; a typedef name; a label name;
: a macro name; or a macro parameter.

We don't allow documenting all those things separately, but it does cover
all the things we do allow to be individually documented.

Agreed.

I agree with the others that "specific" doesn't really make things
better.  "Interfaces" maybe; otherwise we could go for something like
"filter" or "select".

Paint mine green :)

Whatever we end up with, I think it should be added as a synonym for
"functions".  Then the various selectors that are actually pulling out
docs for functions could be changed at leisure - or not at all.  I'd
rather not see a big patch changing everything at once.

Thanks,

jon

I also prefer this one now. I was looking for something like this. My original
idea is 'prototype', but that is only for function.

Jonathan, How about 'identifier' suggested by Matthew as it is mentioned in Then
C spec?

Sure, I'll make 'functions' deprecated and as an alias to our new directive name.

We could also go with 'declaration' or 'definition'.  But I prefer
'identifier'.
