+Private members
+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+
+Inside a struct or union description, you can use the ``private:`` and
+``public:`` comment tags. Structure fields that are inside a ``private:``
+area are not listed in the generated output documentation.
+
+The ``private:`` and ``public:`` tags must begin immediately following a
+``/*`` comment marker. They may optionally include comments between the
+``:`` and the ending ``*/`` marker.
+
+Example::
+
+ /**
+ * struct my_struct - short description
+ * @a: first member
+ * @b: second member
+ * @d: fourth member
+ *
+ * Longer description
+ */
+ struct my_struct {

+ int b;
+ /* private: internal use only */
+ int c;
+ /* public: the next one is public */
