Free tool? Maybe not -- Google is your friend. There are tools available for purchase that will do this.

The only stand alone package I'm aware of that does Cobol is:

I think a few 'enterprise resource management' or 'impact analysis' tools from various vendors (CA, Compuware, etc) also have flowcharting capabilities.

In my experience, the generated flowcharts are not useful due to poor layout and lack of user interaction.

Back in the Y2K days, we used a Viasoft tool to do this. I believe Viasoft got bought by ASG and they renamed the tool but the last I heard it was still available. It is not free, however.
