Graph drawing utilities

The Graphviz layout program takes descriptions of graphs in a simple text language, and makes diagrams in various formats such as images and SVG for web pages, Postscript for inclusion in PDF or other documents, or for display in an interactive graph browser. Graphviz also supports GXL, an XML dialect. Its features include options for colors, fonts, tabular node layouts, line styles, hyperlinks, and custom shapes. Graphs are usually generated from an external data sources, but they can also be created and edited manually, either as raw text files or within a graphical editor.
