Graphical representation of programs

Dear listers,
does anybody know a software which permit to describe the different steps and conditions of a C program or PLC program.

This must be independent of a special PLC.
I would like to represent some C algorithms graphically in "graphcet" (I don't know the english word).
thank you.

Visio works great for us.

We program our PLCs in closed loop state-sequences, and the sequences can easily be diagrammed in Visio using circles for the states and arrows for the transitions between the states. We add text that describes what each state is doing, and other text next to the arrows which describes the conditions required for each transition to the next state.
