Creates XML diagrams
AutoDia is a Perl application designed to allow the easy creation of XML diagrams from various data sources. The output is meant for use with Dia (or any XML parser). AutoDia supports any language through the use of handlers, and a good handler for Perl as well as a simple handler for C++ are included. AutoDia is a modular application that parses source code or data (if a handler is available) and produces an XML document in Dia format, essentially a Dia diagram autocreation package. The diagrams its creates are standard UML diagrams showing dependancies, superclasses, packages, classes and inheritances, as well as the methods, etc of each class. AutoDia supports any language that a Handler has been written for - currently this is Perl (pretty good) and C++ (handles simple C++). It does not need Dia or GNOME to be installed. This means it can bulk process dia data on a server without client stuff installed, ie on CVS commits or intranets.
