Parse Graphviz xdot files and interactively view them using GTK and Cairo.

Currently not all xdot features are supported. Nodes and edges can be highlighted by hovering them and clicked.

For an example of using this library try the accompanying Demo.hs with the dot-files in dot-examples/.

This library was originally written as part of ghc-vis, but is now a seperate project, in case anyone else may have a use for it.
