Source Flowchart Generator Options

Displaying all program comment characters within Flowchart blocks often does not give suitable results. Many comments contain characters the only purpose of which is to emphasize the visual differences of comments in relation to the rest of the program code. It is possible to adjust DAC so that it ignores such characters and displays only useful text in Flowchart blocks.

Code analysis parameters pertaining to Flowchart can be set in the Options > Flowchart Generator dialog:
