NAME

       dotty - A Customizable Graph Editor

SYNOPSIS

       dotty [ -V ] [ -lmmode ] [ -ellev ] [ file ]

DESCRIPTION

       dotty is a graph editor for the X Window System.  It may be run as a standalone editor, or
       as a front end for applications that use graphs.  It can control multiple windows  viewing
       different graphs.

       dotty  is written on top of dot and lefty.  lefty is a general-purpose programmable editor
       for technical pictures.  It has an interpretive programming language similar to AWK and C.
       The  user  interface and graph editing operations of dotty are written as lefty functions.
       Programmer-defined graph operations may be loaded as well.  Graph layouts are made by dot,
       which runs as a separate process that communicates with lefty through pipes.

       If  the  input  graph  contains xdot attributes, dotty will use that to display the graph.
       Otherwise, it runs dot to obtain layout information.

USAGE

       The file name is optional. If present, the graph contained in that file  is  displayed  in
       the dotty window.

OPTIONS

       -V     Prints the version.

       -lmmode
              Sets the layout mode. The mode can be sync or async. The default is async.

       -ellev Sets the mesage level. The lev can be 0 or 1. The default is 0.

BUGS

       The lefty parser does not accept anonymous graphs.
