I want to draw a diagram that shows how my program flows.

I have a main routine that calls a few subroutines, which in turn call a few subroutines.

Does a package exist which can show this hierarchy?

I want to be able to configure the size of all the rectangles I draw.

something like this

Please show what you've tried so far (there are many, many questions about flow charts on this site, and lots of examples on Without a concrete question, this will probably be closed as "too localized". – Jake Mar 19 '13 at 8:47
If I wouldn't find a package, I was simply going to draw every block individually as a rectangle and then connect them. – user494461 Mar 19 '13 at 8:49
There are some excellent examples in the TikZ/PGF manual (perhaps look at the tutorial "Putting a Diagram in Chains" in Section I.5) or also in the CS area of which may be helpful for your case. The node sizes can be easily configured using, e.g., the text width and minimum height parameters. – benwilfut Mar 19 '13 at 8:53
I think this suits nicely - – user494461 Mar 19 '13 at 8:53
You can draw this easily if you go through "Putting Diagram in Chains" of the pgfmanual. There were several methods discussed there. What about trying to do it on your own first then come back here to ask about the part that gives you difficulty. – hpesoj626 Mar 19 '13 at 9:02
