There's not much out there. Someone mentioned Hawkey, and that's what I
know best. The flowcharting utility creates a diagram based on subroutine
calls. It's only for RPG. There're also job explosion and implosion tools.
These give you an outline view of what a program calls or what calls a
program, resp.

The output of the flowcharter is rather rudimentary and not, IMO, all that
useful. We don't use it hardly at all. I find the explosion/implosion stuff
much more useful.

Abstract/Probe may have similar functionality. I don't know that product
enough except to say that I like Hawkeye better—perhaps just from familiarity.

I went to the Sourcebook link at <> and picked the
Documentation area for a search. There were a number of items, including
the above-mentioned. One even claimed to make spaghetti code understandable.
