This tag is considered deprecated and may be removed in a future version of phpDocumentor. It is recommended to use the @package tag’s ability to provide multiple levels.
The @category tag is used to organize groups of packages together.
The @category tag was meant in the original de-facto Standard to group several Structural Elements their @package tags into one category. These categories could then be used to aid in the generation of API documentation.
This was necessary since the @package tag, as defined in the original Standard, did not contain more than one hierarchy level; since this has changed this tag SHOULD NOT be used.
Please see the documentation for @package for details of its usage.
This tag MUST NOT occur more than once in a DocBlock.
The @category tag has no significant effect in phpDocumentor. It will be shown with the description information of associated Structural Elements and is inherited by classes and interfaces.
