# sccmap - Man Page

extract strongly connected components of directed graphs

## Synopsis

## Description

*sccmap* decomposes digraphs into strongly connected components and an auxiliary map of the relationship between components. In this map, each component is collapsed into a node. The resulting graphs are printed to standard out. The number of nodes, edges and strongly connected components are printed to standard error. **sccmap** is a way of partitioning large graphs into more manageable pieces.

## Options

The following options are supported:

- -d
Preserve degenerate components of only one node.

- -s
Do not print the resulting graphs. Only the statistics are important.

- -S
Just print the resulting graphs. No statistics are printed.

- -o
*output* Prints output to the file

*output*. If not given,**sccmap**uses stdout.- -v
Generate additional statistics. In particular,

**sccmap**prints the number of nodes, edges, connected components, and strongly connected components, followed by the fraction of nodes in a non-trivial strongly connected components, the maximum degree of the graph, and fraction of non-tree edges in the graph.

## Operands

The following operand is supported:

*files*Names of files containing 1 or more graphs in dot format. If no

*files*operand is specified, the standard input will be used.

## Diagnostics

**sccmap** emits a warning if it encounters an undirected graph, and ignores it.
