Get yourself a program called ALLCLEAR. You can actually script your flow
chart using conditional statements, i.e. IF, NOT, THEN, AND. Great tool for
developing a program and the subsequent documentation efforts. Even
provides a means to hyper-jump from the flow chart to the actual help
section, or program code.

Does anyone know if there's a tool that will convert outlined lists to
charts automatically?

I'm trying to find a product that will take something like the following:

1. Open safe.
1.1 Pick lock.
1.2 Learn combo
1.2.1 Find written combo.
1.2.2 Get combo from target
1.3 Cut open safe
1.4 Install safe improperly

.and so forth

and automatically turn it into something like the graphic at

I was wondering if either Visio or ABC Flowcharter had something like that,
or some other package entirely.

Thanks for any help!
