NAME
graphviz  rich set of graph drawing tools
SYNOPSIS
This manpage has been written to fulfil the need of a centralized documentation
presenting all available tools in the graphviz package.
AVAILABLE TOOLS
Graph layout programs
 dot

filter for hierarchical layouts of graphs
 neato

filter for symmetric layouts of graphs
 twopi

filter for radial layouts of graphs
 circo

filter for circular layout of graphs
 fdp

filter for symmetric layouts of graphs
All of the filters work with either directed or undirected graphs, though
dot
is typically used for directed graphs and
neato
for undirected graphs.
Note also that neato n[2] can be used to render layouts produced
by the other filters.

This manual page was written by Cyril Brulebois
<cyril.brulebois@enstbretagne.fr> in november 2006, based on an initial
documentation effort by Joachim Berdal Haga <jbh@lupus.ig3.net>. It can be
distributed under the same terms as the graphviz package.
