This is called a class browser. There is probably one included with your development environment - try looking for it in the help. If you use MSVC, search for "Class Browsing Tasks".

I have a large project. And a large group of programmers that update and modify the project very frequently.
I need an automatic tool that scan all the header files, create a full hierarchy cart for all the classes in my project and print if for me.
I don’t think that MSDEV ‘Class browser’ provides this functionality.

You're right - it's output is not very good for printing. You may consider using a CASE tool that supports reverse engineering, like Rational Rose (http://www.rational.com/products/rose/) or Together/C++. Stingray have such a tool with the MFC classes already in it (http://www.stingsoft.com/vcase/default.asp), so if you use MFC this may be helpful.
