Flowcharts from C/C+++ source code

What are some good open source code analysis programs that will draw a flow chart from C/C++ source code?

Doxygen does this, does it not?

Doxygen will build control flow graphs and UML-like class diagrams.

On a related note, is there anything like this for ruby?

Ruby is way harder to do something like this for, since a lot of ruby's coolness involves anonymous functions (the {|var| ... } type notation)

StarUML kicks some ass this way, but I haven't tried any of the "C++ Profile, Code Generator and Reverse Engineer" features myself.
YMMV.

Thanks disillusioned. The C++ profile, Reverse Engineering feature was simple to run and the flow chart looks accurate. Source code was available from SourceForge. Only drawback is that it only runs under Windows, but I have a Windows machine to load it on. Thanks for the tip.
