The graphviz Library

The _graphviz_ library provides bindings to the [Graphviz] graph
visualisation suite of tools for the purely functional programming
language [Haskell].  It can be downloaded from [HackageDB] or - if you
have [cabal-install] - installing it is as simple as:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ {.bash}
cabal update
cabal install graphviz


Library features

Main features of the graphviz library include:

* Almost complete coverage of all Graphviz attributes and syntax.

* Support for specifying clusters.

* The ability to use a custom node type.

* Functions for running a Graphviz layout tool with all specified
  output types.

* The ability to not only generate but also parse Dot code with two
  options: strict and liberal (in terms of ordering of statements).

* Functions to convert [FGL] graphs to Dot code - including support to
  group them into clusters - with a high degree of customisation by
  specifying which attributes to use and limited support for the
  inverse operation.

* Round-trip support for passing an [FGL] graph through Graphviz to
  augment node and edge labels with positional information, etc.
