DESCRIPTION

       gvgen generates a variety of simple, regularly-structured abstract graphs.

OPTIONS

       The following options are supported:

       -c n   Generate a cycle with n vertices and edges.

       -C x,y Generate an x by y cylinder.  This will have x*y vertices and 2*x*y - y edges.

       -g [f]x,y
              Generate an x by y grid.  If f is given, the grid is folded, with an edge attaching
              each pair of opposing corner vertices.  This will have x*y vertices and 2*x*y - y -
              x edges if unfolded and 2*x*y - y - x + 2 edges if folded.

       -G [f]x,y
              Generate  an  x by y partial grid.  If f is given, the grid is folded, with an edge
              attaching each pair of opposing corner vertices.  This will have x*y vertices.

       -h n   Generate a hypercube of degree n.  This will have 2^n vertices and n*2^(n-1) edges.

       -k n   Generate a complete graph on n vertices with n*(n-1)/2 edges.

       -b x,y Generate a complete x by y bipartite graph.  This will have x+y  vertices  and  x*y
              edges.

       -B x,y Generate  an x by y ball, i.e., an x by y cylinder with two "cap" nodes closing the
              ends.  This will have x*y + 2 vertices and 2*x*y + y edges.

       -m n   Generate a triangular mesh with n vertices on a side.   This  will  have  (n+1)*n/2
              vertices and 3*(n-1)*n/2 edges.

       -M x,y Generate an x by y Moebius strip.  This will have x*y vertices and 2*x*y - y edges.

       -p n   Generate a path on n vertices.  This will have n-1 edges.

       -r x,y Generate  a  random graph.  The number of vertices will be the largest value of the
              form 2^n-1 less than or equal to x. Larger values of y increase the density of  the
              graph.

       -R x   Generate a random rooted tree on x vertices.

       -s n   Generate a star on n vertices.  This will have n-1 edges.

       -S n   Generate  a Sierpinski graph of order n.  This will have 3*(3^(n-1) + 1)/2 vertices
              and 3^n edges.

       -S n,d Generate a d-dimensional Sierpinski graph of order n.  At present, d must be  2  or
              3.   For  d  equal  to  3, there will be 4*(4^(n-1) + 1)/2 vertices and 6 * 4^(n-1)
              edges.

       -t n   Generate a binary tree of height n.  This will have 2^n-1 vertices and 2^n-2 edges.

       -t h,n Generate a n-ary tree of height h.

       -T x,y

       -T x,y,u,v
              Generate an x by y torus.  This will have x*y vertices and 2*x*y edges.  If u and v
              are  given,  they  specify  twists  of  that  amount in the horizontal and vertical
              directions, respectively.

       -w n   Generate a path on n vertices.  This will have n-1 edges.

       -i n   Generate n graphs of the requested type. At present, only available if the -R  flag
              is used.

       -n prefix
              Normally,  integers  are  used  as node names. If prefix is specified, this will be
              prepended to the integer to create the name.

       -N name
              Use name as the name of the graph.  By default, the graph is anonymous.

       -o outfile
              If specified, the generated graph is written into the file outfile.  Otherwise, the
              graph is written to standard out.

       -d     Make the generated graph directed.

       -v     Verbose output.

       -?     Print usage information.

EXIT STATUS

       gvgen  exits  with  0 on successful completion, and exits with 1 if given an ill-formed or
       incorrect flag, or if the specified output file could not be opened.
