dotty - A Customizable Graph Editor SYNOPSIS
dotty [ -V ] [ file ] DESCRIPTION
dotty is a graph editor for the X Window System. It may be run as a standalone editor, or as a front end for applications that use graphs. It can control multiple windows viewing different graphs. dotty is written on top of dot and lefty. lefty is a general-purpose programmable editor for technical pictures. It has an interpretive programming language similar to AWK and C. The user interface and graph editing operations of dotty are written as lefty functions. Pro- grammer-defined graph operations may be loaded as well. Graph layouts are made by dot, which runs as a separate process that communicates with lefty through pipes. USAGE
The file name is optional. If present, the graph contained in that file is displayed in the dotty window. OPTIONS
-V Prints the version. SEE ALSO

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 undi- rected graphs. Note also that neato -n[2] can be used to render layouts produced by the other filters.
