lneato


SYNOPSIS
       lneato [ -V ] [ -lmmode ] [ -ellev ] [ file ]

DESCRIPTION
       lneato  is  a graph editor for the X Window System.  It may be run as a
       standalone editor, or as a front end for applications that use  graphs.
       It can control multiple windows viewing different graphs.

       lneato  is  written on top of neato and lefty.  lefty is a general-pur-
       pose programmable editor for technical pictures.  It has  an  interpre-
       tive programming language similar to AWK and C.  The user interface and
       graph editing operations of lneato  are  written  as  lefty  functions.
       Programmer-defined  graph operations may be loaded as well.  Graph lay-
       outs are made by neato, which runs as a separate process that  communi-
       cates with lefty through pipes.

       If  the  input  graph contains xdot attributes, lneato will use that to
       display the graph. Otherwise, it runs neato to obtain  layout  informa-
       tion.

USAGE
       The file name is optional. If present, the graph contained in that file
       is displayed in the lneato window.

OPTIONS
       -V     Prints the version.

       -lmmode
              Sets the layout mode. The mode can be sync or async. The default
              is async.

       -ellev Sets the mesage level. The lev can be 0 or 1. The default is 0.
