I appreciate the many suggestions on flow charting software - haven't started 
testing on any of them, but from reading the docs, it looks like DIA may be the 
closest to what I'm after...

My need isn't so much for documenting an existing program, as it is to define 
the structure and flow of a program that I'm working on - I've made an Arduino 
based controller for the pumps in our swimming pool, and the program that my GF 
and I have made for it doesn't have all the functionality that I'd like, and 
doesn't quite work right...

I may be old fashioned (or is that just 'old' ;-} ), and I'll admit my only 
serious formal programming training was a Fortran IV course back in the batch 
programming days, and the rule they taught us then was that we needed to draw 
out the program before we started coding.  The idea was that if you couldn't 
draw it (on paper yet!) you couldn't code it....

As such I'd like to have something that has at least some level of 
'intelligence' about how to do the drawing, and that does most of the 'artwork' 
side as transparently as possible so I can concentrate on the program side of 

A lot of the suggestions seemed more aimed at creating pretty pictures than 
programming, but DIA looks like it might be a good fit....
