NAME

       Graph::Writer::VCG - write out directed graph in VCG format

SYNOPSIS

         use Graph;
         use Graph::Writer::VCG;

         $graph = Graph->new();
         # add edges and nodes to the graph

         $writer = Graph::Writer::VCG->new();
         $writer->write_graph($graph, 'mygraph.vcg');

DESCRIPTION

       Graph::Writer::VCG is a class for writing out a directed graph in the file format used by
       the VCG tool, originally developed for Visualising Compiler Graphs.  The graph must be an
       instance of the Graph class, which is actually a set of classes developed by Jarkko
       Hietaniemi.

       If you have defined any attributes for the graph, nodes, or edges, they will be written
       out to the file, as long as they are attributes understood by VCG.

METHODS

   new()
       Constructor - generate a new writer instance.

         $writer = Graph::Writer::VCG->new();

       This doesn't take any arguments.

   write_graph()
       Write a specific graph to a named file:

         $writer->write_graph($graph, $file);

       The $file argument can either be a filename, or a filehandle for a previously opened file.

KNOWN BUGS AND LIMITATIONS

       ·   Attributes with non-atomic values aren't currently handled.  This includes the loc,
           classname, colorentry, and infoname attributes for graphs, and the loc attribute for
           nodes,

       ·   Can currently only handle graph, node, and edge elements and their attributes.  So
           doesn't know about foldnode_defaults and things like that.
