Comment extraction has now been modified in the MibAnalyzer to always extract all comments in the MIB files. Most comments are correctly associated with and object, but in some cases the Mibble object structure does not allow storing comments at the right level. In those cases, the comment is always added to the parent object comments.

New getComment() methods and corresponding comment extraction has been added to the following classes:

MibType
ElementType (inherited from MibType, but specific comment extraction)
SnmpCompliance
SnmpModule
SnmpRevision

The MibWriter class has been updated to print all these comments accordingly.

This functionality will be available from version 2.9.alpha1.

In previous versions of Mibble, some comment extraction and printing (in the MibWriter) were added. This support was not complete, however, as several comments were ignored by the parser.

This is unfortunate, as the MIB file comments sometimes contain important information that ought to be kept in the pretty-printed version. Mibble should implement support for comment parsing so that at the very minimum, no comment text is ever lost. Ideally, the comments should be associated with the corresponding objects in the parsed MIB data structures.
