Using Docblocks for quality code documentation

Information to all developers

Each file must keep the same docblock at the top of each file up to the following line.

"// Check to ensure this file is included in Joomla!
defined('_JEXEC') or die('Restricted access');"

The top copyright is to stay the same.

However you make add the @copyright into the top docblock of any of code your wish to add additional copyright to.

The way in which each file should be documented has changed slightly. You may have already seen some changes to a few of the files already. Here you will find all the references you will need to keep your files to out new Docblock documentation.

I have provided you with two files for each type one which has comments on how the document tags work and which should be used.
The other is a blank file which has the basic template for you to drop any code into.

If you do not require all the @tags when documenting your code feel free to take them out.
