    Lightbulb Dependencies and Bloat, respective to Doxygen

    Regarding that thick stack of dependencies, while it's not exactly Doxygen's 'bloat', It's still system 'bloat'. More importantly it's worth stating, any resulting feelings of unease are legitimate. If the thought of installing huge mass of dependencies makes you cringe, I wouldn't be ecstatic installing Doxygen.

    Docbook? or any of the modern XML alternatives? XSL-FO?
    It's really not difficult to find better alternatives to Latex.
    I mean, a solid reason exists for why we avoid troff in 2013.

    Thanks; Latex is my go-to program if I want to create well-formatted documents, but I'll take a look into the alternatives.
