       maria-vis - graph visualization script for maria




       This manual page documents briefly the maria-vis command.

       maria-vis  is  a  lefty  script  invoked  by maria in order to visually
       present information  to  the  user.   The  script  reads  commands  and
       directives  from  standard  input  and  may  write maria query language
       commands to standard output.   An  end-of-file  condition  on  standard
       input terminates the script.
       The  script  is  built  on  top of the dotty script that is part of the
       GraphViz package.  The commands prefixed with visual in maria issue two
       kinds  of  commands  to  this  script:  new();  or add(); followed by a
       newline character and a graph definition in  the  dot  input  language.
       The  new  function  in  the  script displays the graph in a new window,
       while the add function copies information from the graph  to  the  last
       modified graph.
