tcldot adds graph manipulation facilities to tcl based on the capabilities of dot. It permits a script programmer to add and delete nodes and edges to abstract graphs, then have the graph layed out according to dot’s heuristics about what makes an eye-pleasing graph. The graph can rendered in various forms including to tk’s canvas.

tcldot is distributed with the Graph Visualization tools available from: http://www.research.att.com/orgs/ssr/book/reuse/
