GXL2GV,GV2GXL(1)	    General Commands Manual	      GXL2GV,GV2GXL(1)

NAME
       gxl2gv,gv2gxl - GXL-GV converters

SYNOPSIS
       gxl2gv [	-gd?  ]	[ -ooutfile ] [	files ]
       gv2gxl [	-gd?  ]	[ -ooutfile ] [	files ]

DESCRIPTION
       gxl2gv  converts	 between  graphs represented in	GXL and	in the GV lan-
       guage. Unless a conversion type is specified using a flag, gxl2gv  will
       deduce  the  type  of  conversion  from the suffix of the input file, a
       ".gv" suffix causing a conversion from GV to GXL, and a	".gxl"	suffix
       causing	a  conversion from GXL to GV.  If no suffix is available, e.g.
       when the	input is from a	pipe, and no flags are used  then  gxl2gv  as-
       sumes  the  type	 of  the  input	 file from its executable name so that
       gxl2gv converts from GXL	to GV, and gv2gxl converts from	GV to GXL.

       GXL supports a much richer graph	model than GV. gxl2gv will attempt  to
       map  GXL	constructs into	the analogous GV construct when	this is	possi-
       ble. If not, the	GXL information	is stored as an	attribute. The	inten-
       tion  is	 that applying gxl2gv|gv2gxl is	semantically equivalent	to the
       identity	operator.

OPTIONS
       The following options are supported:

       -g     The command name and input file extensions are ignored, the  in-
	      put is taken as a	GV file	and a GXL file is generated.

       -d     The  command name	and input file extensions are ignored, the in-
	      put is taken as a	GXL file and a GV file is generated.

       -?     Prints usage information and exits.

       -o outfile
	      If specified, the	output will be written into the	file  outfile.
	      Otherwise, output	is written to standard out.

OPERANDS
       The following operand is	supported:

       files   Names of	files containing 1 or more graphs in GXL or GV.	 If no
	       files operand is	specified, the standard	input will be used.

RETURN CODES
       Both gxl2gv and gv2gxl return 0 if there	were no	problems  during  con-
       version;	and non-zero if	any error occurred.

BUGS
       gxl2gv  will only convert in one	direction even if given	multiple files
       with varying suffixes.

       The conversion can only handle one graph	per GXL	file.

       There are some GXL constructs which gxl2gv cannot handle.
