SPRINGGRAPH(1)		    General Commands Manual		SPRINGGRAPH(1)

NAME
       springgraph - renders a graph from a .dot file

SYNOPSIS
       springgraph [OPTIONS] < input-file.dot >	output-file.png

DESCRIPTION
       Springgraph will	read in	a .dot file description	of a graph, which, for
       each node, specifies its	name and which other nodes it is connected to,
       and  then renders a graph. The output is	a PNG file. Each node is drawn
       as an ellipse, and each connection is  drawn  as	 an  arrow.  The  node
       placement  is a result of all of	the nodes moving away from each	other,
       while all nodes which are connected move	toward each other. This	 move-
       ment is repeated	until it stabilizes.

       Springgraph  was	 written  as an	alternative to neato, which is part of
       graphviz. It attempts to	read the same .dot files used by graphviz, but
       currently  only supports	a limited number of node attributes (label and
       fillcolor) and can only handle two nodes	per edge definition ("node1 ->
       node2", not "node1 -> node2 -> node3").

OPTIONS
       springgraph accepts the following options:

       -p	       Create a	file that can be rendered with POV-Ray

       -v	       create a	VRML file

       -s	       this  option specifies the scale. All of	the node loca-
		       tions are multiplied by this.  Increase	the  scale  to
		       eliminate node overlaps.	Decrease the scale to make the
		       graph smaller.

       -t	       make the	background of the resulting image transparent.

       -b	       set background color of image, specify it in  the  form
		       RRGGBB,	in hex digits, e.g. FFFFFF is white, 000000 is
		       black, FF0000 is	red, ...

       -l	       set the line color, same	format as the background color

       -h	       display usage synopsis

EXAMPLE
	digraph	{
	 "rene"	-> "myon";
	 "mvo" -> "rene";
	}
