Besides Monty, I think everybody else is in agreement.

A C example:
Strike the ball with a backhand shot.
@param direction Direction of the stroke (where ball goes).
@param hand Whether the stroke is one-handed or two-handed.
@param topspin Forward rotation applied to the ball.
@remark A two-handed backhand is more accurate and imparts
topspin better. A one-handed backhand allows greater
reach with much pace and penetration.
@retval TRUE You lose.
@retval FALSE Ball has hit the court.
bool throw_backhand(type direction, type hand, type topspin);
@details A backhand starts with the back of the hand facing
in the direction of the stroke, typically starting with the
arm crossing the body. They keys of a backhands are: footwork,
shoulder turn, racket preparation and follow through.
@return Whether the ball has landed within court limits.
bool throw_backhand(type direction, type hand, type topspin)
racket_data = prepare_racket(hand, topspin);
return strike_ball(racket_data, direction);

I think there is really just one suggestion. In a nutshell, document
interface in headers, document implementation in source file.
