not sure if this is what you want, but you might try doxygen
you can see an example here:
Maintainer: Luca Filipozzi <email@example.com>
Replaces: doxygen (<< 1.2.14)
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.2.4-4), libstdc++2.10-glibc2.2 (>= 1:2.95.4-0.010810)
Suggests: doxygen-gui, graphviz
Description: Documentation system for C, C++ and IDL.
Doxygen is a documentation system for C, C++ and IDL. It can generate an
on-line class browser (in HTML) and/or an off-line reference manual (in
LaTeX) from a set of documented source files. There is also support for
generating man pages and for converting the generated output into
Postscript, hyperlinked PDF or compressed HTML. The documentation is
extracted directly from the sources.
