Awkward helps you walk your Object Graph and output a dot file suitable for viewing in Graphviz. Awkward doesn't know how to visit your objects, so you must teach it by implementing a subclass of Awkward::Visitor.
May not work
class MyVisitor < Awkward::Visitor def visit_MyModule_MyObject object edge(:some_method) do accept object.some_method end end end viz = MyVisitor.new viz.accept my_object File.open('my_object.dot', 'w') do |f| f << viz.dot end
Then, on the command line:
$ dot -Tgif -O my_object.dot # Generates an image named my_object.dot.gif

FIX (sudo gem install, anything else)
