6 graphviz is a set of graph drawing tools for Unix or MS-Windows
7 (win32), including a web service interface (webdot). Source code and
8 binary executables for common platforms are available. Graph drawing
9 addresses the problem of visualizing structural information by
10 constructing geometric representations of abstract graphs and networks.
11 Automatic generation of graph drawings has important applications in key
12 technologies such as database design, software engineering, VLSI and
13 network design and visual interfaces in other domains. Situations where
14 these tools might be particularly useful include:
15
16 * you would like to restructure a program and first need to
17 understand the relationships between its types, procedures, and source
18 files.
19 * you need to find the bottlenecks in an Internet backbone - not
20 only individual links, but their relationships
21 * you're debugging a protocol or microarchitecture represented as a
22 finite state machine and need to figure out how a certain
23 error state arises
24 * you would like to browse a database schema, knowledge base, or
25 distributed program represented pictorially
26 * you would like to see an overview of a collection of linked
27 documents
28 * you would like to discover patterns and communities of interest in
29 a database of telephone calls or e-mail messages
