Code Analysis

I really need to write a code analysis tool. Something that will inherit
a project (or allow you to define a project) consisting of code and
header files, and produce the following:

1.) Calling tree diagram
2.) Inclusion tree diagram
3.) Class and structure diagrams
4.) Flow diagrams per method/function/block
5.) Comments
6.) Orphans/Widows

Nesting would be a good idea, so for instance the calling tree would
allow a traversal into a class diagram or a flow. It would mean dynamic
documents, so printing might be a bitch, but the ability to be agile in
the analysis would be worth it.

It would make this SO much easier. It's taking me DAYS to do this
manually.

That would be quite cool. As a BA, I'd love to see that stuff.

I've used a couple of tools to do some of this, but never anything that had it all in one place and interactive. I'm just REALLY sick of doing it by hand.
One question comes to mind though. If I wanted to save the analysis in a single format file, what kind would it be? It doesn't lend itself well to either Word or Excel. Maybe Visio?

Visio all the way. It's been the de facto format for flow diagrams in just about every place I've worked.

Word: yick, and the file sizes are huge.
