This is README.txt file for lglc source package. lglc (Leaf Graph
Language Compiler) is a compiler for the LGL language whose target
code is a subset of the DOT language ( The
LGL language is an ASCII-ART based graph definition language, whose
aim is to code graph structures in a readable way. Here is an example:

A -> B <
        \   /E -> @C
         D <
            \F -> G, H

The code above defines the graph structure that can be easily
guessed. Note that the code "E -> @C" creates a loop with the
previously defined node C. Also note that "F -> G, H" creates two
edges. The resulting graph can be visualized converting this code to
DOT language through the lglc compiler and then using Graphviz tools.

The LGL compiler is part of a pipeline management system, so it lacks
some standalone stuff at the moment (notably documentation).
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
