I don't know but doxygen does a pretty good job of creating graphs.

What would you do with an automatically generated graph? (Like Doxygen's?)

I would research the code manually, and draw a simple UML diagram of
interests. Automatically generated graphs are often tediously generic.

I would put a breakpoint deep in a hard feature that's complex enough to
require reverse engineering. Then I'd run to that breakpoint, and copy out
the call stack. Then I would research and diagram each class and method on
this call stack. This would provide UML diagrams that illustrate that hard
feature.
