Thanks in advanced

There are certainly some tools that you pay for that do this sort of thing, don't know about free stuff, however.

Look at SNIFF+ at http://www.takefive.com

I suppose something like web2c (TeX related). I'll look around.
As you explicitly mentioned 'javadoc', 'CcDoc' is what you're looking for: http://www.joelinoff.com/ccdoc/ 

The CcDoc tool is a javadoc like tool that automatically generates web documentation from C++ programs by parsing the source file headers. It was written because I write code in both Java and C++ and wanted a consistent interface for both. I tried very hard to stay true to the javadoc syntax and tool flow but, because of language differences I was forced to change (or add) a few things."
