Up to full list of filters
takes source code as input, and produces formatted listings in html. It also
produces alphabetical indexes of declarations, within each file and for a set of files.
Works for Ada83, Ada95, Ansi C, and some simple C++.
Versions producing FrameMaker documents are also available.

Another c++2html to convert ANSI-C++ programs into HTML source
is derived from Norbert Kiesel's c++2latex.
Available for download. (For information about how to compile it see

cxx2html is a Perl script to convert C++ code to HTML.
The information extracted from the class declarations is used
to create a class summary with links to the member function
documentation and to the documentation for the classes which
are parameters to the member functions.

extracts information from C or C++ source code,
including member definitions and inheritance data, and combines
it with the documentation you provide to produce visually
attractive, navigable, and content-rich documentation pages.

ObjectManual from ObjectSoftware Inc.
generates C++ Class documentation in HTML format.
HyperLinks for methods, base classes are also generated.
ctoohtml is a c/C++ filter that HTMLizes source and header files.
Function and macro definitions are automatically anchored, and references
to these definitions are hyperlinked. In addition, the user may include
HTML markup within the code. Contact: email@example.com (Andy Fagg)

It processes a variety of languages, including C, C++, Pascal, and
FORTRAN. There is the added capability of embedding HTML so that the listing
can be its own documentation. Contact: email@example.com (Nick Borko).
