  An Introduction to GraphViz and dot
Subject:   Dot
Date:   2004-05-23 23:35:11
From:   glenlow
The Mac OS X version of Graphviz currently has much better antialiasing of bitmaps; try running some of your dot files through it to see. It is independent of X11 and uses the native font and PDF machinery on that platform.

It also has a pretty interactive front end, you can tweak most command-line parameters or edit the file, and see the results re-rendered almost instantaneously.

The sources for the front end are BSD and are available from www.graphviz.org. Perhaps some brave soul can port it to GnuStep or something.

[BTW, I'm the author of the Mac OS X port.]
