Specification for writer > dot-writer


DOT Writer presents the results as a directed graph, described in DOT language used by GraphViz software. The same effect can be achieved using gv-writer --format canon but dot-writer does not use the GraphViz library to generate the output.

Options for dot-writer are similar to gv-writer's options. The main differences:

  • dot-writer has no option for specifying the output format since it cannot generate output in formats other than DOT;
  • for output's clarity, dot-writer produces not aligned monochromatic output; --align option forces nodes to be aligned left to right, --color option turns on the edge coloring.




tokenize --lang en ! dot-writer

Tokenize English text and show the result as a graph described in DOT language.

I've read “Fahrenheit 451”
digraph G {
0 -> 4 [label="I've T"]
4 -> 5 [label="_ B"]
5 -> 9 [label="read T"]
9 -> 10 [label="_ B"]
10 -> 13 [label="“ I"]
13 -> 23 [label="Fahrenheit T"]
23 -> 24 [label="_ B"]
24 -> 27 [label="451 X"]

0 -> 30 [label="I've_read_“Fahrenheit_451” TEXT"]
27 -> 30 [label="” I"]


Allowed options:
  --align               force aligning nodes left to right
  --color               assign different colors to edges with different tags
  --show-symbol-edges   show symbol edges
  --show-tags           print edges' layer tags
  --tags arg            filter edges by specified tags
  --tree                show dependencies between edges instead of the content 
                        of the lattice
