sccmap - extract strongly connected components of directed graphs


   sccmap [-dsv] [ -ooutfile ] [ files ]


   sccmap  decomposes  digraphs  into strongly connected components and an
   auxiliary map of the relationship between  components.   In  this  map,
   each  component  is  collapsed  into  a node.  The resulting graphs are
   printed to standard out.  The  number  of  nodes,  edges  and  strongly
   connected components are printed to standard error.  sccmap is a way of
   partitioning large graphs into more manageable pieces.


   The following options are supported:

   -d     Preserve degenerate components of only one node.

   -s     Do not print the  resulting  graphs.  Only  the  statistics  are

   -S     Just print the resulting graphs. No statistics are printed.

          Prints  output  to  the  file  output. If not given, sccmap uses

   -v     Generate additional statistics. In particular, sccmap prints the
          number  of  nodes,  edges,  connected  components,  and strongly
          connected components, followed by the fraction  of  nodes  in  a
          non-trivial strongly connected components, the maximum degree of
          the graph, and fraction of non-tree edges in the graph.


   The following operand is supported:

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


   sccmap  emits  a  warning  if  it  encounters  an undirected graph, and
   ignores it.

Business Opportunity - Goldman Sachs, IBM and countless large corporations are leveraging open source to reduce costs, develop products and increase their bottom lines. Learn what these companies know about open source and how open source can give you the advantage.

Free Software

Free Software provides computer programs and capabilities at no cost but more importantly, it provides the freedom to run, edit, contribute to, and share the software. The importance of free software is a matter of access, not price. Software at no cost is a benefit but ownership rights to the software and source code is far more significant.

Free Office Software - The Libre Office suite provides top desktop productivity tools for free. This includes, a word processor, spreadsheet, presentation engine, drawing and flowcharting, database and math applications. Libre Office is available for Linux or Windows.

Free Books

The Free Books Library is a collection of thousands of the most popular public domain books in an online readable format. The collection includes great classical literature and more recent works where the U.S. copyright has expired. These books are yours to read and use without restrictions.

Source Code - Want to change a program or know how it works? Open Source provides the source code for its programs so that anyone can use, modify or learn how to write those programs themselves. Visit the GNU source code repositories to download the source.
