NAME

       botch-graph-tred - find the transitive reduction of a graph in GraphML or dot format

SYNOPSIS

       botch-graph-tred [options] [ingraph] [outgraph]

DESCRIPTION

       Create a graph with as few edges as possible while maintaining the same reachability
       relationships.

       Calculating the transitive reduction particularly helps to facilitate rendering of dense
       graphs as it removes the clutter of extra edges.

       This tool is the does the same as tred(1) from the graphviz suite but for the GraphML and
       dot input instead of only for dot input. It is also orders of magnitude faster (for
       unknown reasons).

       If either (or both) of the positional arguments is/are omitted, then read GraphML or dot
       from standard input and/or write GraphML or dot to standard output, respectively.  Passing
       a '-' as either argument, explicitly specifies to read the input from standard input and
       write the output to standard output, respectively.

       The input graph type will be determined automatically. If the output graph is given as a
       filename, then the output type will be GraphML if the filename ends with .xml and dot if
       the filename ends with .dot. If the output is done on standard output then it will happen
       in the same format as the input graph.
