A modular application that parses source code
It has been written to make GNOME Dia and any Diagram Application that can use similar XML more powerful. I hope to make Dia more popular than the commerical equivilents because of the ability to vastly extend it in this way. It is based on Object Oriented Perl and uses Template Toolkit, GraphViz, and INLINE::Java.
AutoDia's design goals have been good Object Orientation such as plenty of abstraction, use of inheritance, extensability, robustness and elegance. Speed and security are not concerns as this application is designed to generate xml for documents in a batch processing manner, not an interactive manner, and is a single user application for use from the console.
AutoDia has been previously known as autodial. The output file is still called autodia.out.dia by default. The executable files are now called autodia.pl and autodia_java.pl, the only difference being an additional section near the start of the latter to enable INLINE::Java.
