Then you sure should give GNU enscript a try. It's an ASCII-to-PS tool
at first sight, but it also knows how to process C and quite some
other languages. Nothing overly fancy --- it's based on regexp's, and
we all know that regexp's aren't powerful enough to fully grasp the
syntax of C --- but it works nicely, most of the time.

I'd say a good online analysis tools should be able to beat it, but
that's personal preference...

Right, but it also has some problems. At least the version I've been
using needs a special layout of function heads to be able to find
them. It's not very nice having to reformat the sources you're trying
to review, just to get a fully functional printout. And you can
easily confuse it to kingdom come with a multiline macro definition,
