You can conceptualize your C++ object designs using this tool without
having to write code - I haven't yet downloaded it but from the
website it looks like I can put in my own C++ code snippets in it so
that I can have it generate the C++ program source code the way I want
it to.  I was searching for such a tool and I just found one.  I used
to use Poseidon for UML Community Edition - but that's Java only and
with some restriction.  This tool is C++ based and there are no

The utility of UML is that it saves you time if you want to study the
design of a software application (such as Scribus! :) if that
application does have a UML design document, that is.  It gives you a
very clear picture of what's going on - without bogging you down in
the source code.  A good UML tool (like Poseidon) helps you a lot in
putting your thought process on canvas in the form of object diagrams
very quickly and express your analysis & design visually.  Then you
can use the finalized design to "generate" the program for you -
automatically - well that's the ideal condition - most of the times,
you have to edit the generated program source code and make
modifications.  What really attracts me to "this" tool is that I think
I can have it generate the "different" program source code.

It potentially can prove to be a highly useful tool for the Scribus developers.
