    Phoronix: Clang Can Analyze Code Comments, Generate Docs

    Aside from why LLVM/Clang was ported to one of the fastest super computer's in the world and using Clang to implement Microsoft's C++ AMP, another interesting session at this month's LLVM Developers' Conference in San Jose was about using Clang to analyze code comments...

      Joke aside, from a purely semantic point of view, ASCII art is just a nonsensical collection of letters and symbols, so it might complain that your comment does not seem to match and/or describe the code in any way. But who knows, so long as I receive flak for even commenting my code, because obviously I've got too little to do if I've got the time to write "useless" comments, so long there'll be little need for such things.

          A bit hard to follow the slides without commentary, but it looks very useful. The code I'm working on (which was an existing project) is sure to have LOTS of documentation errors and plenty of comment bitrot (happens easily with hundred of thousands of LOC)
