    Doxygen vs phpDocumentor

    Hello,
    I'm thinking about changing the automatic API documentation system of my framework.

    What would you advise between Doxygen and phpDocumentor?

    Thanks in advance

    The performance of Doxygen is orders of magnitudes above phpDocumentor. For a large code base, the latter is almost unusable. The output of Doxygen may not be quite as pretty, and it takes some tweaking, so for a small library phpDocumentor might be preferable. I'm not sure if phpDocumentor has such features by now, but Doxygen can generate various diagrams using GraphViz.

    Thank you, I suspected this; I think Doxygen is more suitable for me (I have a large codebase).
