Summary description: Convert graphs generated by Graphviz to LaTeX friendly
formats
License type: dfsg
Announcement text:

Dot2tex is a tool for converting graphs rendered by Graphviz to formats that can be used with LaTeX. The purpose of dot2tex is to give graphs generated by Graphviz a more LaTeX friendly look and feel. This is accomplished by converting xdot output from Graphviz to a series of TikZ and PGF, or PSTricks commands. This approach allows: * Typesetting labels with LaTeX, allowing mathematical notation. * Using native PSTricks and PGF/TikZ commands for drawing arrows. * Using backend specific styles to customize the output

This package is located at http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/graphics/dot2tex/ . More information is at http://tug.ctan.org/pkg/dot2tex (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 .

## dot2tex – Convert graphs generated by Graphviz to LaTeX friendly formats

Dot2tex is a tool for converting graphs rendered by Graphviz to formats that can be used with LaTeX.

The purpose of dot2tex is to give graphs generated by Graphviz a more LaTeX friendly look and feel. This is accomplished by converting xdot output from Graphviz to a series of TikZ and PGF, or PSTricks commands. This approach allows:

- Typesetting labels with LaTeX, allowing mathematical notation;
- Using native PSTricks and PGF/TikZ commands for drawing arrows; and
- Using backend specific styles to customize the output.

Dot2tex requires a Python interpreter v2.4 or better.
