Creating sequence charts with Doxygen

I wrote a small Python script called trace2dox that one can use to turn trace logs in message sequence charts into Doxygen. I'll write instructions later, but for now the script and an example log and msc output can be found from Gitorious. You just need to create the logs somehow and then run it through this script to create the charts you need. You can filter, colour etc. the output.

For the project I wrote this script I created a C macro that wraps the message sending function and adds logging capabilities. This way I didn't need to change anything in the actual source code.

I'll write better documentation once I have time.
