### Graphviz: dot

In this blog post I will discuss the programming language dot.

Dot is a graph description language. I will dive right in and show you an example. The following code:

graph example {
a [label="root"]
b [shape="box"]
c [color="red"]

a -- b -- d
a -- c -- e
c -- f [label="indirect"]
}

produces this output:

This clearly shows the capabilities of dot. For more information about dot, and it companion programs visit the Graphviz website.
