[Mapbender-dev] PHP code comments (was: PHPDoc in the wiki)

I just realized that PHPDoc can only document one class per file. I
don't know how often this is the case for the php classes, e.g.
class_wms has one additional class (layer). I found this while trying
PHPDoc at the sld editor classes.

PHPDoc throws an ugly error if it comes to multiple classes in one
file and functions, variables, etc. of the additional classes are
merged under the first class.

Should we therefore seperate each class in an individual file?

Cheers, Michael
