TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
You might consider using UML (Unified Modeling Language). It is a modeling
standard that is quickly gaining traction in the software development world.
Daigrams created to UML standards _should_ be intuitive enough for people
with little UML knowledge to understand, and those with UML knowledge will
greatly appreciate your use of it.
Do a search for UML and VB. There are many UML tools available, many have
trial versions, some have free limited feature versions.
> Subject: code diagrams anyone?
> Dear All,
> I'm putting together documentation for our developers who are using VB and
> SQL. I'd like to put some flow charts/diagrams together showing how the
> various subs and functions call each other and the general way in which a
> user would navigate around the software and how the 20 or so
> modules relate
> to each other.
> Anybody got any clues? I've searched the archives and found some
> but not too much. I've never done this before so have very little to start
> I think what I'm looking forward is a basic idea of what I should include
> (Lets and gets, calls), how I should put it together, and the names of any
> tools that would let me do this automatically via the code.
