graphviz man page

graphviz — rich set of graph drawing tools

Synopsis

This manpage has been written to fulfil the need of a centralized documentation presenting all available tools in the graphviz package.

Available Tools

Graph layout programs

dot

filter for hierarchical layouts of graphs

neato

filter for symmetric layouts of graphs

twopi

filter for radial layouts of graphs

circo

filter for circular layout of graphs

fdp

filter for symmetric layouts of graphs

All of the filters work with either directed or undirected graphs, though dot is typically used for directed graphs and neato for undirected graphs. Note also that neato -n[2] can be used to render layouts produced by the other filters.

This manual page was written by Cyril Brulebois <cyril.brulebois@enst-bretagne.fr> in november 2006, based on an initial documentation effort by Joachim Berdal Haga <jbh@lupus.ig3.net>. It can be distributed under the same terms as the graphviz package.
