What about a code coverage tool.  You set up a code coverage tool and
run the program.  Then you should get line by line notes of which lines
can be deleted as well as the areas which are barely used and can be
reworked easily.

I haven't really done much C++ so couldn't suggest a specific tool but
I'm sure they are out there.
