generating documentation with doxygen: encoding problems

asked 2012-11-23 01:56:28 -0500

When I try to generate the doxygen documentation of my C++ Code I get the error explained below. Does anybody know how to avoid this problem? Does this mean that my doxygen documentation on C++ files is bad-written? Thanks in advance

$ rosrun rosdoc rosdoc mypackage
/opt/ros/fuerte/stacks/documentation/rosdoc/src/rosdoc/ UserWarning: roslib.rospack is deprecated, please use rospkg
  import roslib.rospack
initializing rosdoc context:
    package filters: ['mypackage']
    path filters: []
ERROR: Doxygen of package [mypackage] failed: 'ascii' codec can't encode character u'\xf1' in position 7: ordinal not in range(128)

I expect that this is a problem with unicode, or the lack there of, in the xml parsing. \xf1 is the ~n as in your name and I expect you used it in the author or maintainer field. I'd try removing the character and trying again.

That was the problem. I removed (sadly) the ñ in my name and worked. Thanks! :-)
