NAME

gv_perl - graph manipulation in perl

 

SYNOPSIS

#!/usr/bin/perl
use gv;

 

USAGE

 

INTRODUCTION

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

 

COMMANDS

New graphs

New empty graph

graph_handle gv::graph (name);
graph_handle gv::digraph (name);
graph_handle gv::strictgraph (name);
graph_handle gv::strictdigraph (name);
New graph from a dot-syntax string or file

graph_handle gv::readstring (string);
graph_handle gv::read (filename);
graph_handle gv::read (channel);
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);
Set value of existing attribute of graph/node/edge (using attribute handle)

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);
string gv::getv (node_handle, attr_name);
string gv::getv (edge_handle, attr_name);
Get value of attribute of graph/node/edge (using attribute handle)

string gv::getv (graph_handle, attr_handle);
string gv::getv (node_handle, attr_handle);
string gv::getv (edge_handle, attr_handle);
Obtain names from handles

string gv::nameof (graph_handle);
string gv::nameof (node_handle);
string gv::nameof (attr_handle);
Find handles from names

graph_handle gv::findsubg (graph_handle, name);

attribute_handle gv::findattr (graph_handle, name);
attribute_handle gv::findattr (node_handle, name);
attribute_handle gv::findattr (edge_handle, name);
Misc graph navigators returning handles

node_handle gv::headof (edge_handle);
node_handle gv::tailof (edge_handle);
graph_handle gv::graphof (graph_handle);
graph_handle gv::graphof (edge_handle);
graph_handle gv::graphof (node_handle);
graph_handle gv::rootof (graph_handle);
Obtain handles of proto node/edge for setting default attribute values

node_handle gv::protonode (graph_handle);
edge_handle gv::protoedge (graph_handle);
