Java has javadoc, which generates HTML pages. I've never tried it on
C/C++ source code, however.

To use it, you have use sed (or even a word processor's search and
replace function) to add an extra asterisk to those banners.

|/** denotes javadoc comment
* @see Object
* @version 97-02-20
* @author Maynard Hogg

The @see tag generates an HTML "see also" hyperlink.
