colour the vertices of graphs in all distinct ways

Synopsis

vcolg [-q] [-u|-T|-o] [-e#|-e#:#] [-m#] [-c#,..,#] [-f#] [infile [outfile]]

Description

Read graphs or digraphs and colour their vertices in all possible ways with colours 0,1,2,... . Isomorphic graphs derived from the same input are suppressed. If the input graphs are non-isomorphic then the output graphs are also.

-e# | -e#:#

specify a value or range of the total value of the colours

-m# number of available colours (default 2 if -c not given)

-c#,..,#

specify the maximum number of vertices of each colour

The total must at least equal the number of vertices in the input.

-d#,..,#

minimum vertex degree for each colour (out-degree for digraphs)

-D#,..,#

maximum vertex degree for each colour (out-degree for digraphs)

-d and -D can have fewer colours than -m/-c but not more

-f# Use the group that fixes the first # vertices setwise

-T

Use a simple text output format (nv ne {col} {v1 v2})

-o

Use sparse6 (undirected) or digraph6 (directed) for output,

provided m=2 and the inputs have no loops.

-u

no output, just count them

-q

suppress auxiliary information
