    Source code ... profiler?

    Is there some sort of program that can create a visual, explorable representation of my source code files, their contents, and their organization?

    I seem to remember a program that could make html pages out of a group of source files so you could explore them by clicking through hyperlinks (like, if you see a function call here, you can click on its name and go to the file and function definition), but I can't remember the name of it.

    Compilers can produce warnings - make the compiler programmers happy: Use them!

    Doxygen is the best for this sort of thing.

    However, it can take some time to execute, especially for large projects. In addition to Doxygen, you might want to consider using an editor like KDevelop which allows you to follow functions to their definitions just by pressing a key combination, right inside the editor.

    (I'm suggesting KDevelop because it's the only editor I know of for sure that does this. I'm almost certain Eclipse and MSVC do this too -- the latter two will run on Windows. KDevelop is KDE [Linux] only.)
