    Documentation tools for C

    Are there any open source tools available to analyze c source files so that I can input a source file and get a list of inclusions, types, global variables, and functions? I was unable to find any via google (but perhaps I wasn't searching with the correct vocabulary)

    But it will be pretty limited until you go through the code and add appropriate annotation to the source code.
    However, once done, the resulting documentation is very easy to read and navigate, and is very useful to newcomers to the code.

    Or perhaps
    Source-Navigator(TM)
    followed by
    source navigator NG
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.
