Thanks for sharing Brett.  I’ve always wanted a tool like this so we could document the launch files in ROS-Industrial.  I wonder if this would be useful to generate documentation on the wiki (sort of like the doxygen docs).

Subject: [ros-users] Announcing roslaunch graph generator

Hello everyone,

I thought it would be useful to be able to generate a graph of the tree of files and nodes used by a particular launch file. After not being able to find anything capable of doing this, I wrote a quick python script to do just that and thought I would share it with everyone.

You can find the code at: https://github.com/bponsler/roslaunch_to_dot

It's fairly simple to use, but feel free to message me if you have any questions, issues, or suggestions for improvements.
