DocClass - Generates class documentation from source files

Docclass is a simple C++ program which reads in C++ header files, and outputs documentation describing the class hierarchy, methods, inherited methods etc.

Docclass has a rather dumb parser, but it should cope with reasonably sane C++ class declarations. It understands comments, and tries to group the comments with the appropriate class or method.

Docclass does not require templates, or nested classes, as many people had C++ compilers which didn't support them. With any luck, it should understand them a little in the code it analyses, though.
