graphml2gv - GRAPHML-DOT converter


   graphml2gv [ -?v ] [ -ggname ] [ -ooutfile ] [ files ]


   graphml2gv  converts a graph specified in the GRAPHML format to a graph
   in the GV (formerly DOT) format.


   The following options are supported:

   -v     Turns on verbose mode

   -?     Prints usage information and exits.

          The string gname is used as the name of the generated graph.  If
          multiple  graphs  are  generated, subsequent graphs use the name
          gname appended with an integer.

          Prints output to the file outfile. If not given, graphml2gv uses

          The following operand is supported:

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


   Return 0 if there were no problems during conversion; and  non-zero  if
   any error occurred.


   As   both   the  graph  and  graphics  models  of  GV  and  GML  differ
   significantly, the conversion can only  be  at  best  approximate.   In
   particular,   GV  currently  has  no  notion  of  hyperedges  or  edges
   containing graphs.

   At  present,  graphml2gv  only  supports  the  basic  graph   topology.
   Specifically,  the  <KEY>  and  <DATA> elements are not handled, though
   they could be.
