I have recently been reading through Write Great Code, Volume 1 by Randall Hyde and he had 2 useful charts I've seen before, but I haven't seen them in a long while so I figured I'd drop there here for my future reference.

A great way to find duplicate code. Has built in handlers for Java, JSP, C, C++, Fortran and PHP and has instructions on how to add a handler for your favorite language if it's not included.

I've been trying to put my finger on why I think a particular set of classes a previous programmer wrote to interact with a payment gateway annoys the hell out of me. At first I just felt overwhelmed by the number of classes and their interactions. I then listed out the classes and used a simple diagram to show basic interaction. Class A has a process that uses data from Class B, runs it through Class C, dumps the results into Class D, & somewhere along the line Class E gets used as well.
