cpp:function can't parse multiple signatures

Anonymous avatarAnonymous created an issue

The python domain allows multiple signatures to be grouped as follows:

.. py:function:: start(x)
                 end(x)

The corresponding formulation in the C++ domain does not parse:

.. cpp:function:: iterator begin()
                  iterator end()

In the general case, doing this correctly for C++ might be undecidable, due to cases like this:

.. cpp:function:: T& vector<T>::operator[](size_t loc)
                  const T& vector<T>::operator[](size_t loc) const

where it's ambiguous whether the `const` should be interpreted as a trailing part of the first signature, or the leading part of the second signature. However, it wouldn't be so bad to require an explicit comma between declarations.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
