( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
I've inherited some perl code that traverses several source code files with very little documentation. I was hoping that there might be a tool that would reverse engineer the code and would create a flow diagram of the system. Anyone heard of such a beast? Any recommendations short of walking through the code line by line? The code doesn't currently work and they want me to get it working.
