 NAME
      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.

    Graph drawing programs
      lefty
           A Programmable Graphics Editor

      lneato
           lefty + neato

      dotty
           lefty + dot



    Graph layout enhancement
      gvcolor
           flow colors through a ranked digraph

      unflatten
           adjust directed graphs to improve layout aspect ratio

      gvpack
           merge and pack disjoint graphs

      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.
