Syntax

@function [<FunctionName>]

Overview

This marks an object as being a function, even though it may not appear to be one to the parser. It sets the doclet's @kind to 'function'.

Examples

Using @function to mark a function.
/** @function */
var paginate = paginateFactory(pages);

Without the @function tag, the paginate object would be documented as a generic object (a @member), because it isn't possible to tell from examining the line of code what type of value paginate will hold when it is run.

Using @function with a name.
/** @function myFunction */

// the above is the same as:
/** @function
 * @name myFunction */
