       dotty - A Customizable Graph Editor


       dotty [ -V ] [ file ]


       dotty  is  a  graph editor for the X Window System.  It may be run as a
       standalone editor, or as a front end for applications that use  graphs.
       It can control multiple windows viewing different graphs.

       dotty  is  written on top of dot and lefty.  lefty is a general-purpose
       programmable editor for technical pictures.   It  has  an  interpretive
       programming  language  similar  to  AWK  and C.  The user interface and
       graph editing operations of  dotty  are  written  as  lefty  functions.
       Programmer-defined  graph  operations  may  be  loaded  as well.  Graph
       layouts are made  by  dot,  which  runs  as  a  separate  process  that
       communicates with lefty through pipes.


       The file name is optional. If present, the graph contained in that file
       is displayed in the dotty window.


       -V     Prints the version.
