Document source code with flowcharts automatically.

Document source code with flowcharts automatically.

Document source code with flowcharts automatically.

I am looking for a way to document source code (VB.NET) as a flowchart in order to understand how a program functions.  I have come across a program that claims to automatically do this - interrogate the source code and build a flowchart.... http://www.fatesoft.com/s2f/index.htm.  Does anyone have experience with what I am requesting or has anyone used this particular program or another to obtain what I am interested in?  Is this possible and how well does it work?  Thanks in advance.


RE: Document source code with flowcharts automatically.

The best way to tell is to just download the free trial, test it out, and but it if you like it.

I develop a flowcharting tool (not code to flowchart, though), so I've seen it listed on the same download sites I list mine on. The product seems legit. Also many of the software download sites scan programs for viruses and other malware, so if there any of that going on I'm sure they wouldn't be listed on all the sites I've seen them on.

Lastly, there are several other code-to-flowchart tools on the market. Go through the list at download.com and you'll see a few others for comparison. Plus they have user reviews: http://www.download.com/3120-2001_4-0-3-0.html?qt=flowchart&li=50&os=128
