Hi compiler devs,
I would like to use the DocTree API for JavaDoc comments but I don't see
any way to get a DocTree from a JavaDoc comment?
Is there any way to simply parse a JavaDoc comment, given as a String,
along with the start and end positions in the original source, and get back
a DocTree with source positions properly set? In other words, is it
possible to write this method:
DocTree parseDocTree(String comment, int pos, int endPos);
If that is not possible, I see that I can go from TreePath ->
DocCommentTree with DocTrees#getDocCommentTree(TreePath) but I'm assuming
this is only for JavaDoc comments that are attached to top-level program
elements. Is this the only way to get DocTrees?
