a Graphviz to LaTeX converter.

The purpose of dot2tex is to give graphs generated by the graph layout tool Graphviz, a more LaTeX friendly look and feel. This is accomplished by:

  • Using native PSTricks and PGF/TikZ commands for drawing arrows, edges and nodes.
  • Typesetting labels with LaTeX, allowing mathematical notation.
  • Using backend specific styles to customize the output.
  • Dot2tex can also automatically adjust the size of nodes and edge labels to fit the output from LaTeX.
