UML-Class-Simple (0.19) ***

This is a nice module and easy to install and use but don't expect too much, it doesn't generate real UML class diagrams. I know it's a "*::Simple" CPAN module but I think the output it generates misses absolute must haves.

It will draw classes and their inheritance hierarchy but doesn't draw any of the object-level relationships between classes with directionality and cardinality. These are very important to have in any UML class diagram.

Because perl is dynamic and everything can be changed at runtime, I thought it would just be too difficult to do this properly...

But I gave UML::Class::Simple a whirl, and I'm absolutely blown away. The result is phenomenal. To see my last year's work (30,000 lines) represented this way is just incredible.

Great module. Dead simple to use, and produces very pretty graphs.
