NAME

       gvmap.sh - pipeline for running gvmap

SYNOPSIS

       gvmap.sh [-vV?]  [ options ] [ -o outfile ] [ files ]

DESCRIPTION

       gvmap.sh  takes as input a graph in DOT format, performs a layout, runs the output through
       gvmap and renders the output. At some point, it is hoped to integrate all of  these  tasks
       into gvmap.

OPTIONS

       The following options are supported:

       -a k   The  integer  k  specifies  the average number of artificial points added along the
              bounding box of the labels. Such artificial points are added  to  avoid  a  country
              boundary  cutting  through  the  boundary  box  of  the  labels.  Computing time is
              proportional to k; hence, for large graphs, a small value of k is suggested. If k =
              -1,  a  suitable  value  of k is automatically selected based on the graph size. By
              default k = -1.

       -K layout
              specifies which program should be use for the initial layout. By default,  sfdp  is
              run.  Also  by  default, the layout is passed the flag -Goverlap=prism. This can be
              overridden using a -g flag.

       -T format
              specifies the final output format. This works the same way as the -T flag  for  any
              Graphviz layout program.

       -N attr=val
              specifies  the setting of a default node attribute during the rendering phase. This
              works the same way as the -N flag for any Graphviz layout program.

       -G attr=val
              specifies the setting of a graph attribute during the rendering phase.  This  works
              the same way as the -G flag for any Graphviz layout program.

       -E attr=val
              specifies  the setting of a default edge attribute during the rendering phase. This
              works the same way as the -E flag for any Graphviz layout program.

       -n attr=val
              specifies the setting of a default node attribute during  the  layout  phase.  This
              works the same way as the -N flag for any Graphviz layout program.

       -g attr=val
              specifies  the setting of a graph attribute during the layout phase. This works the
              same way as the -G flag for any Graphviz layout program.

       -e attr=val
              specifies the setting of a default edge attribute during  the  layout  phase.  This
              works the same way as the -E flag for any Graphviz layout program.

       -A flag
              specifies a flag to be passed to gvmap. For example, gvmap.sh -Ae -As3 causes gvmap
              -e -s3 to be run.

       -v     Set verbose mode.

       -V     Print version information and exit.

       -?     Print usage information and exit.

EXAMPLES

       The following invocation creates a map with edges in semi-transparent light gray and nodes
       laid out using sfdp:

       gvmap.sh -Ae -Ecolor=#55555522 -Tpng foo.gv > foo.png

       It is equivalent to running the pipeline

       sfdp -Goverlap=prism foo.gv | gvmap -e | neato -n2 -Ecolor=#55555522 -Tpng > foo.png
