Automatic Site Documentation
Posted on 2004-10-19
I've just been assigned to work on a simple but large, undocumented, php web application.
Before I do anything to it, I want to understand the whole system by documenting (especially its source code) the system to some printable format such as MS-WORD.
I made a manual start to this, copying and pasting the code to MS-WORD but after a few hundred pages, of just a small part of the system, I've seen this is impractical/impossible.
Is there any way this can be done automatically?
Are there any applications out there that can scan all the pages from a website in a specified directory, copying the scripts to one printable file?
If this application could go further by producing a diagram of how all the pages are linked, this would be of great help. And the screen outs? Any miracles for this?
I've had a brief look at the REPORT feature in DREAM WEAVER but this seams to be mainly for reporting on logical errors found on a sight.
