Along the same lines, I've been looking for something similar to the
old Unix program tgrind or vgrind - you feed it source code, and out
pops a beautifully formatted document ready to print, in TeX or
(preferably) PostScript. Ideally, the function headers would be in a
larger font, and the headers & footers of the document have the
function being printed, and so forth. I've seen all sorts of literate
programming tools and documentation tools, but for doing a code
review, nothing beats a nicely formatted printout.
