This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2018) Abstract We present the Flowgen tool, which generates flowcharts from annotated C + + source code. The tool generates a set of interconnected high-level UML activity diagrams, one for each function or method in the C + + sources. It provides a simple and visual overview of complex implementations of numerical algorithms. Flowgen is complementary to the widely-used Doxygen documentation tool. The ultimate aim is to render complex C + + computer codes accessible, and to enhance collaboration between pro...
