.SH "NAME"
graphviz \- rich set of graph drawing tools

.SH "SYNOPSIS"
This manpage has been written to fulfil the need of a centralized documentation
presenting all available tools in the graphviz package.

.SH "AVAILABLE TOOLS"

.SS "Graph layout programs"
.TP
.B dot
20
filter for hierarchical layouts of graphs
21 22
.TP
.B neato
23
filter for symmetric layouts of graphs
24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31
.TP
.B twopi
filter for radial layouts of graphs
.TP
.B circo
filter for circular layout of graphs
.TP
.B fdp
32 33 34 35 36 37 38
filter for symmetric layouts of graphs
.PP
All of the filters work with either directed or undirected graphs, though
.B dot
is typically used for directed graphs and
.B neato
for undirected graphs.

Note also that \fBneato \-n[2]\fP can be used to render layouts produced
40
by the other filters.
