NAME

gv_ocaml - graph manipulation in ocaml

 

SYNOPSIS

Run the ocaml interpreter


#use "topfind";;
- : unit = ()


#require "gv";;
/usr/lib/ocaml/gv/gv.cma: loaded

 

USAGE

 

INTRODUCTION

gv_ocaml is a dynamically loaded extension for ocaml that provides access to the graph facilities of graphviz.

 

COMMANDS

New graphs

New empty graph

graph_handle gv.graph (name);

Add new subgraph to existing graph

graph_handle gv.graph (graph_handle, name);
New nodes

Add new node to existing graph

node_handle gv.node (graph_handle, name);
New edges

Add new edge between existing nodes

edge_handle gv.edge (tail_node_handle, head_node_handle);
Add a new edge between an existing tail node, and a named head node which will be induced in the graph if it doesn't already exist

edge_handle gv.edge (tail_node_handle, head_name);
Add a new edge between an existing head node, and a named tail node which will be induced in the graph if it doesn't already exist

edge_handle gv.edge (tail_name, head_node_handle);
Add a new edge between named tail and head nodes which will be induced in the graph if they don't already exist

edge_handle gv.edge (graph_handle, tail_name, head_name);
Setting attribute values

Set value of named attribute of graph/node/edge - creating attribute if necessary

string gv.setv (graph_handle, attr_name, attr_value);
string gv.setv (node_handle, attr_name, attr_value);
string gv.setv (edge_handle, attr_name, attr_value);

string gv.setv (graph_handle, attr_handle, attr_value);
string gv.setv (node_handle, attr_handle, attr_value);
string gv.setv (edge_handle, attr_handle, attr_value);
Getting attribute values

Get value of named attribute of graph/node/edge

string gv.getv (graph_handle, attr_name);
