(granted it was in ASCII but it was still useful) Here's a screen shot of Visustin with a sample VFP program: It's very cool and I can definitely see where it would be useful in figuring out new pieces or "inherited" pieces of code.

You can open a program or simply cut and paste code in the screen and hit Diagram and away it goes. It even lets you export out to Visio, Word and Powerpoint - great for code reviews! A bulk flowchart program (disabled in the demo) looks like it would let you chart out a set
