    Hi,

    I'm working on my first C++ project. This involves using Eclipse to
    understand a large toolkit, and then modify it adding my own changes.

    In order to better visualise the "architecture" of the toolkit I guess
    it might be a good idea to get a program, or an eclipse plugin, or
    whatever, to visualise class dependencies for me..I don't know the
    technical way to express this..maybe a UML visualiser? I mean that right
    now I'm climbing up from each class to the generalisation of that class
    and building a diagram to understand what specialises what, what is
    unrelated and what related, and so on.

    It would be nice to have a tool do this for me. Are you aware of the
    existence of such a thing?

    Cheers
    Giuseppe

    Sure, something like Rhapsody or Rational Software Developer would
    create visual URL diagrams for you on imported code.

    Thanks, I found these two tools, Doxygen and BOUML, that might probably
    suit my needs.

    NetBeans also has support for UML.

    Might work for their newfound C++ support, too?

    Thanks,
