Abstract

A program is described for automatically generating an organiz tional chart for software components. Large software products are often hierarchical in nature. This hierarchy consists of many software components consisting of a plurality of programs. Programmers require detailed documentation to grasp the organiza- tion of even a single component of the system. To expedite the documentation of the system and help new programmers become familiar with the system more quickly, this program generates an organizational chart for one or more components of a system.
