autodia - a perl script using the Autodia modules to create UML Class Diagrams or
documents. from code or other data sources.


AutoDia takes source files as input and using a handler parses them to create
documentation through templates. The handlers allow AutoDia to parse any language by
providing a handler and registering in in autodia.pm. The templates allow the output to be
heavily customised from Dia XML to simple HTML and seperates the logic of the application
from the presentation of the results.

AutoDia is written in perl and defaults to the perl handler and file extension matching
unless a language is specified using the -l switch.

AutoDia requires Template Toolkit and Perl 5. Some handlers and templates may require
additional software, for example the Java SDK for the java handler.

AutoDia can use GraphViz to generate layout coordinates, and can produce di-graphs
(notation for directional graphs) in dot (plain or canonical) and vcg, as well as Dia xml.
