Lucky you, his project is now yours.

Inherited code doesn’t have to be a fight.

Maintaining legacy code is infinitely easier when you can visualize it and understand how it actually works. Understand™ makes this possible. This is the way.

Analyze it.

It only takes a few minutes for Understand™ to parse a million lines of source code and begin generating powerful visualizations and insights.

Visualize it.

Once Understand™ has analyzed your code, you can begin exploring the generated graphs or dig deeper and see how everything is connected.

Maintain it.

After visualizing relationships and identifying issues, you can quickly edit the source or assign parts to your team without ever leaving Understand™.

Fight Bad Code

 

The fastest way to refactor or fix inherited code is to divide and conquer. Understand™ makes this easy for teams:

  • Leave notes (text, images, etc) inside projects

  • Assign different parts of the code to different people

  • See who is managing each part of the code

  • Tag issues or bugs for reference

“Understand is invaluable in my work, not just for understanding code I have inherited, but for understanding the entire language! Understand has made a difference, not just in my daily work, but in my career overall!”
 
— Jason Bold, Aurora Flight Sciences
“Understand is integral in my code analysis and development activities. I use it to parse our project's source code to obtain various metrics (complexity, SLOC, etc.), to understand control and data flow, to research impacts of changes, etc. ”
 
— Jason Kibler, Bell Helicopter

No matter how complex your project, Understand™ can help.

Use it on Mac, Linux, or Windows. Analyze over 20 languages.
