       amk_grf - create target architecture from source graph


       amk_grf [options] [gfile] [tfile]


       The amk_grf program builds a decomposition-defined target architecture tfile from a source
       graph gfile.

       Target architectures define the topology of the  target  graphs  used  by  static  mapping
       programs gmap(1) and dgmap(1). Target architectures can be either algorithmically-defined,
       for common, regular topologies, or decomposition-defined, such as  the  ones  produced  by

       When  the proper libraries have been included at compile time, amk_grf can directly handle
       compressed files, both as input and output. A stream is treated as compressed whenever its
       name  is  postfixed with a compressed file extension, such as in 'brol.tgt.bz2' or '-.gz'.
       The compression formats which can be supported are the bzip2  format  ('.bz2'),  the  gzip
       format ('.gz'), and the lzma format ('.lzma', on input only).

       Since  decomposition-defined  target  architecture files have a size which is quadratic in
       the number of target vertices, because of the presence of  a  distance  matrix  structure,
       using compressed files to store them may save a lot of space.


              Apply  bipartitioning  strategy  strat  to compute the recursive bipartition of the
              whole source graph into smaller target subdomains.

       -h     Display some help.

              Only keep vertices the indices of which belong to the space-separated  list  stored
              in lfile. This allows one to create target architectures which can even be disjoint
              subsets of a larger target architecture, modeled as a graph.

       -V     Display program version and copyright.


       Create a decomposition-defined target architecture from a 2D regular grid source graph  of
       dimension  3  times  5,  and save it, as a compiled target architecture, under the gzip(1)
       format, to file 'm3x5.tgt.gz'.

           $ gmk_m2 3 5 | amk_grf | acpl - m3x5.tgt.gz

       Note that, in this precise case, it would be much preferable to use directly the  'mesh2D'
       algorithmically-defined target architecture.

           $ echo "mesh2D 3 5" > m3x5.tgt


       acpl(1), amk_ccc(1), atst(1), dgmap(1), gmap(1), gmtst(1).
