       libxdot provides	support	for parsing and	deparsing graphical operations
       specificed by the xdot language.

       This encapsulates a series of cnt xdot operations, stored in the	 array
       pointed	to  by	ops.  The sz indicates the size	of each	item stored in
       ops. If the user	sets the freefunc field, this function will be	called
       on  each	 item  in  ops during freeXDot before the library does its own
       clean up	of the item. This allows the user to free any resources	stored
       in the item by using an expansion of the	xdot_op	structure.

       A  value	 of  this type represents one xdot operation. The operation is
       specified by the	kind field. The	corresponding data is  stored  in  the
       union  u,  with	the subfield associated	with a given kind indicated by
       the comments.

       The drawfunc field allows the user to attach a  drawing-specific	 func-
       tion to the operation, providing	an object-based	interface. These func-
       tions can be automatically attached during parsing by providing a  non-
       NULL second argument to parseXDotF.

       This type provides an enumeration of the	allowed	xdot operations.  See
       for the specific	semantics associated with each operation.

       This represents a rectangle. For	ellipses, the x	and x fields represent
       the center of the rectangle, and	w and h	give the half-width and	 half-
       height, respectively.  For images, (x,y)	gives the lower	left corner of
       the rectangle, and w and	h give the width and height, respectively.

       This type encapsulates a	series of cnt points.

       A value of this type corresponds	to printing the	string text using  the
       baseline	 point	(x,y).	 The width field gives an approximation	of how
       wide the	printed	string will be using the current font and  font	 size.
       The  align  field indicates how the text	should be horizontally aligned
       with the	point (x,y).

       This denotes the	insertion of an	image. The image source	 is  given  by
       name. The images	is to be placed	into the rectangle pos.

       The fields give the name	and size, in points, of	a font.

       This  enumeration  type	corresponds to the xdot	alignment values -1, 0
       and 1 used with the text	operator, or '\l', '\n'	and '\r' used  in  dot

     xdot* parseXDotF (char *str, drawfunc_t* opfns, int sz)
       Parses  the  string  str	as a sequence of xdot operations and returns a
       pointer to the resulting	xdot structure.	 The function parses  as  many
       xdot  operations	 as it can. If some unknown or incorrect input was en-
       countered in str, the ops and cnt fields	will  reflect  the  operations
       parsed  before  the  error, and the XDOT_PARSE_ERROR bit	will be	set in
       the flags field.	 The function returns NULL if  it  cannot  parse  any-

       If  sz is non-zero, it is assumed to be the size	of some	structure type
       containing xdot_op as a prefix. In this case, the elements in the array
       pointed to by ops will each have	size sz.

       If  opfns is non-zero, it is taken to be	any array of functions indexed
       by xop_kind. During parsing, the	drawfunc member	of xop_op will be  set
       to the corresponding function in	opfns.

     xdot* parseXDot (char *str)
       This is equivalent to parseXDotF(str, 0,	0) .

     void freeXDot (xdot* xp)
       This  frees the resources associated with the argument.	If xp is NULL,
       nothing happens.

     extern char* sprintXDot (xdot* xp)
     extern void fprintXDot (FILE* fp, xdot* xp)
       These two functions deparse the argument	xdot  structure,  producing  a
       string  representation.	fprintXDot  writes  the	 output	 onto the open
       stream fp; sprintXDot returns a heap-allocated string.

       The color string	with fill and draw operations can  encode  linear  and
       radial  gradients.  These values	are parsed automatically by parseXDotF
       or  parseXDot,  with   xdot_op	having	 kind	xd_grad_pen_color   or
       xd_grad_fill_color and the value	is stored in grad_color.

       For  an	application  that handles its own parsing of xdot, the library
       provides	three helper functions.

     xdot_grad_type colorTypeXDot (char	*str)
       returns the color type described	by the input string.

     char* parseXDotColor (char	*str, xdot_color* clr)
       attempts	to parse the string str	as a color value, storing  the	result
       in clr. It returns NULL on failure.

     void freeXDotColor	(xdot_color* cp)
       This frees the resources	associated with	a value	of type	xdot_color.

       Although	 some small checking is	done on	the sz argument	to parseXDotF,
       it is assumed it	is a valid value from sizeof applied to	some structure
       type  containing	xdot_op	as its first field. There can be no validation
       of the opfns argument.
