Software Documentation

Continue from http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Misc/Q_23780237.html#a22621802.

I would like to zoom in to the technical documention aspect of software documentation.
What is the best approach to document the software since I have only the source code to refer to at this moment?

you can do reverse engineering to generate UML diagrams (class, packages, activity, etc.) from the source code.
You can do it with Visual Studio Team Edt. and Visio, or you can use some 3rd party tool like IBM's Rational reverse engineering tools.

i have seen a tool    "Understand " from SCItool it  is a tool to understand software documentation...
sci understand is an easy to use tool to understand complex source code and generating documentation from different source code it supports all the languages.

above mentioned tools made UML models for understanding classes and their hierarchy they do not show the actual sequence flow.
