NAME
       gvmap.sh	- pipeline for running gvmap

SYNOPSIS
       gvmap.sh	[-vV?]	[ options ] [ -o outfile ] [ files ]

DESCRIPTION
       gvmap.sh	 takes as input	a graph	in DOT format, performs	a layout, runs
       the output through gvmap	and renders the	output.	At some	point,	it  is
       hoped to	integrate all of these tasks into gvmap.

OPTIONS
       The following options are supported:

       -a k   The  integer k specifies the average number of artificial	points
	      added along the bounding box  of	the  labels.  Such  artificial
	      points are added to avoid	a country boundary cutting through the
	      boundary box of the labels. Computing time is proportional to k;
	      hence, for large graphs, a small value of	k is suggested.	If k =
	      -1, a suitable value of k	is automatically selected based	on the
	      graph size. By default k = -1.

       -K layout
	      specifies	which program should be	use for	the initial layout. By
	      default, sfdp is run. Also by default, the layout	is passed  the
	      flag -Goverlap=prism. This can be	overridden using a -g flag.

       -T format
	      specifies	 the  final  output format. This works the same	way as
	      the -T flag for any Graphviz layout program.

       -N attr=val
	      specifies	the setting of a default  node	attribute  during  the
	      rendering	 phase.	This works the same way	as the -N flag for any
	      Graphviz layout program.

       -G attr=val
	      specifies	the setting of a graph attribute during	the  rendering
	      phase.  This  works the same way as the -G flag for any Graphviz
	      layout program.

       -E attr=val
	      specifies	the setting of a default  edge	attribute  during  the
	      rendering	 phase.	This works the same way	as the -E flag for any
	      Graphviz layout program.

       -n attr=val
	      specifies	the setting of a default  node	attribute  during  the
	      layout  phase.  This  works  the same way	as the -N flag for any
	      Graphviz layout program.

       -g attr=val
	      specifies	the setting of a graph	attribute  during  the	layout
	      phase.  This  works the same way as the -G flag for any Graphviz
	      layout program.

       -e attr=val
	      specifies	the setting of a default  edge	attribute  during  the
	      layout  phase.  This  works  the same way	as the -E flag for any
	      Graphviz layout program.

       -A flag
	      specifies	a flag to be passed to gvmap.  For  example,  gvmap.sh
	      -Ae -As3 causes gvmap -e -s3 to be run.

       -v     Set verbose mode.

       -V     Print version information	and exit.

       -?     Print usage information and exit.

EXAMPLES
       The  following  invocation creates a map	with edges in semi-transparent
       light gray and nodes laid out using sfdp:

       gvmap.sh	-Ae -Ecolor=#55555522 -Tpng foo.gv > foo.png

       It is equivalent	to running the pipeline

       sfdp -Goverlap=prism foo.gv | gvmap -e |	 neato	-n2  -Ecolor=#55555522
       -Tpng > foo.png
