The mathgenealogy package

[Tags: gpl, program]

A simple command line program for extracting data from the Mathematics Genealogy Project (http://genealogy.math.ndsu.nodak.edu/index.php).

Lookup your entry at http://genealogy.math.ndsu.nodak.edu/index.php and then use that URL as a command line argument. For example, if Carl Gauss wanted to explore his academic ancestors, he would type

 mathgenealogy http://genealogy.math.ndsu.nodak.edu/id.php?id=18231

which produces the directed acyclic graph http://dl.dropbox.com/u/22490968/genealogy_of_gauss.png. See

 mathgenealogy --help

for more options. Requires GraphViz (in particular the dot program) to run.
