so im not talking about commenting the code, i can do that fine. im talking about the part at the beginning. ive seen the gpl. ive personally done the authors version info and a little bit about the program, but is there a better way?
Well, I used to put Doxygen comments in source files and header files, which meant if I updated one I had to make sure to update the other. Too many comments also gets in the way and makes the code hard to read.
