dataflow diagram generation from source


Is there any software available that can generate
dataflow diagrams (graphs) from c code source.

I have found one that is MS Windows based, but none so far
that are linux based. I am using Centos 6.5, 64 bit.

It is okay if I need to combine two systems. I thought this could be done
with cflow and something else. Can that work?

Any help appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Respectfully,


jyunker

You must not have looked very hard (if at all), since just putting "how to generate dataflow diagrams from source code in linux" into Google pulls up over 3 MILLION hits, like these:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...Language_tools
http://data-flow-diagram-tool-linux....ilehungry.com/
http://www.visual-paradigm.com/suppo...atingdata.html
http://hellboundbloggers.com/2011/12...iagrams-39394/

Since you've been here for five years now, you should already know to do basic research of your own.

No idea what you mean by "combine two systems"...do you mean dual-boot? Using cflow with wine under Linux? What?

The saracasm is not appreciated or needed. I checked the four sites that you listed. Number 2 and 4 are blocked on my system - go figure; Numbers 1 and 3 are worthless.

Of course I looked (googled) for it. I thought it would be relatively easy to find. I was wrong and so are you.

I am not looking for drawing tool! That is easy to find. I am looking for a tool thta can generate dataflow diagrams from source code.

Now that is something different. I believe that IBM has such a tool put in with a lot of other tools (a swiss army knife of software so to speak) and the cost is thousands of dollars. Maybe I could by that one But waitt my last name is not Rockefellerr. I live in the real world There is no wayy my organization will spend that kind of moneyon such software. So I look for it on the web..

Is ths how you answer an honest question on this forum?


If you want to speed a lot of money you can get one, if you want to just settle for a drawing tool you can do that also.

If are looking for a tools that can take source and generate dataflow diagrams then it is difficult. Hence, the question thta I posted.


Respectfullly,


jyunkerr

Number 1 has at least FOUR programs that do EXACTLY what you're asking for...guessing you didn't bother clicking any of the links on those pages, and reading about any of the software. Specifically, the Wikipedia page.

..which is what you were given; which is what I found with a VERY brief Google search.
