NAME
unflatten - adjust directed graphs to improve layout aspect ratio SYNOPSIS
unflatten [-f] [-llen] [-clen ] [ -o outfile ] [ files ] DESCRIPTION
unflatten is a preprocessor to dot that is used to improve the aspect ratio of graphs having many leaves or disconnected nodes. The usual layout for such a graph is generally very wide or tall. unflatten inserts invisible edges or adjusts the minlen on edges to improve layout compaction. OPTIONS
The following options are supported: -l len The minimum length of leaf edges is staggered between 1 and len (a small integer). -f Enables the staggering of the -l option to fanout nodes whose indegree and outdegree are both 1. This helps with structures such as a -> {w x y z} -> b. This option only works if the -l flag is set. -c len Form disconnected nodes into chains of up to len nodes. -o outfile causes the output to be written to the specified file; by default, output is written to stdout. 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. AUTHORS

NAME
tred - transitive reduction filter for directed graphs SYNOPSIS
tred [ files ] DESCRIPTION
tred computes the transitive reduction of directed graphs, and prints the resulting graphs to standard output. This removes edges implied by transitivity. Nodes and subgraphs are not otherwise affected. The ``meaning'' and validity of the reduced graphs is application depen- dent. tred is particularly useful as a preprocessor to dot to reduce clutter in dense layouts. Undirected graphs are silently ignored. 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. BUGS
Using bitmaps internally would substantially decrease running time. DIAGNOSTICS
If a graph has cycles, its transitive reduction is not uniquely defined. In this case tred emits a warning. AUTHORS
