I'm looking for a tool to draw data flow diagram.
I'm looking for Ascent software. Is that downloadable from internet? ...or else please recommend any other software to draw DFD. I don't want the drawing tool. It should be able to function as Ascent, Which explores the DFD.

    Dataflow diagrams can be drawn by using many tools such as Microsoft Visio, visual paradigm, visual praise, etc.
    But what I need is what do you want to draw and for what purpose. But anyway MS Visio is preferred.

    All the best

    Thanks for all the comment. In fact I want the software Which explores the processes like Ascent .
    I don't want the drawing tools like Microsoft visio. I like to work on Visual paradigim.However,Even though the Visual paradigim is free (Community version),It just only allows to draw one diagram.

    So for the time being,I leave this questions for lots of suggestions and answers.
