Automatic Site Documentation

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.

Visio XP/2003 can create a flowchart of an existing website. Its not everything you are asking for, but it might help in part of your documentation

Well, you could use something like this to combine them and spit out a word file: http://www.thebeatlesforever.com/processtext/abcmerge.html

I've never used it, but seems to be what you're looking for, if it handles that many pages...there is a trial version to test it, so you may want to do that...

Weren't both of these combined the answer you were looking for?
