DRAWSTATEXML(1)	      User Contributed Perl Documentation      DRAWSTATEXML(1)

NAME
       drawstatexml.pl - turns a simple	xml description	into a state diagram

SYNOPSIS
	   drawstatexml.pl diagram.xml > diagram.svg
	   java	-jar batik-rasterizer.jar diagram.svg

DESCRIPTION
       The xml format is described by the (unenforced) dtd in the samples
       directory included with the distribution.  The advantage	of the xml
       format is that it lets you name the states and specify edges in terms
       of the names.  The samples directory also includes examples in the
       files ending in xml.  See the samples/README.

       If you don't like xml, feel free	to use the text	format supported by
       drawstate.pl.  You could	also use UML::State directly to	support	a
       format of your choice.

PREREQUISTE
       XML::DOM

BUGS
       The state.dtd description is not	enforced.  This	can lead to hard to
       diagnose	errors in the input file.

       All edges using the same	label must be in the same transition_set tag.
       If a transition_set tag repeats a label used by an earlier
       transition_set tag, it overwrites that transition_set.  (Think of the
       labels as hash keys, I do.)

       The bugs	in UML::State apply here as well, since	this script uses it to
       make the	pictures.  See perldoc UML::State for those bugs.
