gxl2gv


SYNOPSIS
       gxl2gv [ -gd?  ] [ -ooutfile ] [ files ]
       gv2gxl [ -gd?  ] [ -ooutfile ] [ files ]

DESCRIPTION
       gxl2gv  converts  between  graphs represented in GXL and in the GV lan-
       guage. Unless a conversion type is specified using a flag, gxl2gv  will
       deduce  the  type  of  conversion  from the suffix of the input file, a
       ".gv" (or a ".dot") suffix causing a conversion from GV to GXL,  and  a
       ".gxl"  suffix  causing  a  conversion from GXL to GV.  If no suffix is
       available, e.g. when the input is from a pipe, and no  flags  are  used
       then gxl2gv assumes the type of the input file from its executable name
       so that gxl2gv converts from GXL to GV, and gv2gxl converts from GV  to
       GXL.

       GXL  supports a much richer graph model than GV. gxl2gv will attempt to
       map GXL constructs into the analogous GV construct when this is  possi-
       ble.  If not, the GXL information is stored as an attribute. The inten-
       tion is that applying gxl2gv|gv2gxl is semantically equivalent  to  the
       identity operator.

OPTIONS
       The following options are supported:

       -g     The  command  name  and  input  file extensions are ignored, the
              input is taken as a GV file and a GXL file is generated.

       -d     The command name and input  file  extensions  are  ignored,  the
              input is taken as a GXL file and a GV file is generated.

       -?     Prints usage information and exits.

       -o outfile
              If  specified, the output will be written into the file outfile.
              Otherwise, output is written to standard out.

OPERANDS
       The following operand is supported:

       files   Names of files containing 1 or more graphs in GXL or GV.  If no
               files operand is specified, the standard input will be used.

RETURN CODES
       Both  gxl2gv  and gv2gxl return 0 if there were no problems during con-
       version; and non-zero if any error occurred.

BUGS
       gxl2gv will only convert in one direction even if given multiple  files
       with varying suffixes.

       The conversion can only handle one graph per GXL file.

       There are some GXL constructs which gxl2gv cannot handle.
