Summary description: package for metapost to draw finite state machines,
graphs, trees, etc.
License type: lppl
Announcement text:

This package is a collection of macros for METAPOST to make easier to draw finite-state machines, automata, labeled graphs, etc. Nodes can be either isolated or arranged into matrices or trees; edges connect pairs of nodes through arbitrary paths. Some parameters can be specified to define different shapes for nodes and/or different styles for the edges.

This package is located at http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/graphics/metapost/contrib/macros/automata . More information is at http://tug.ctan.org/cgi-bin/ctanPackageInformation.py?id=Automata (if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear). We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org . Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/usergroups.html .

## automata – Finite state machines, graphs and trees in METAPOST

The package offers a collection of macros for METAPOST to make easier to draw finite-state machines, automata, labelled graphs, etc. The user defines nodes, which may be isolated or arranged into matrices or trees; edges connect pairs of nodes through arbitrary paths. Parameters, that specify the shapes of nodes and the styles of edges, may be adjusted.
