Doxygen Generated Reference Manual

The new HDF5 documentation based on Doxygen is available here

This documentation is WORK-IN-PROGRESS.

Since this portion of the HDF5 documentation is now part of the source code, it gets the same treatment as code. In other words, issues, inaccuracies, corrections should be reported as issues in GitHub, and pull requests will be reviewed and accepted as any other code changes.
