    Hi,

    I have picked up someone else's software project, but it doesn't have system design documentation, I was wondering if anyone knew of a (free) open source software that can be used on Linux (am using Ubuntu), that I can point to a directory of C++ hpp and cpp files and it will produce diagram(s) of the class hierarchy and system dependancies so that I can debug it and work out what is missing when I am trying to compile it.

    Cheers!

    I'd check out doxygen first -
    http://www.stack.nl/~dimitri/doxygen/
    It generates documentation from the layout of your source files using comments in the source files, and makes lovely little diagrams of the class/file relationships and dependancies.
