NAME
       dotty - A Customizable Graph Editor

SYNOPSIS
       dotty [ -V ] [ -lmmode ]	[ -ellev ] [ 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.

       If  the	input  graph  contains xdot attributes,	dotty will use that to
       display the graph. Otherwise, it	runs dot to obtain layout information.

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.

       -lmmode
	      Sets the layout mode. The	mode can be sync or async. The default
	      is async.

       -ellev Sets the mesage level. The lev can be 0 or 1. The	default	is 0.

BUGS
       The lefty parser	does not accept	anonymous graphs.
