Has anyone come up with a more useful graphing facility for CLIM 1.
than FORMAT-GRAPH-FROM-ROOT? In particular, I need to be able to graph
general (connected) lattices which may have more than one "root", shared
nodes, etc. Ideally, I'd like something similar to Genera's
FORMATTING-GRAPH, which provides a dynamic environment in which graphs are
can be elaborated in arbitrary order using FORMATTING-GRAPH-NODE and
CONNECT-GRAPH-NODE calls. Before I go off and do something silly like
porting FORMATTING-GRAPH myself, has anyone done something similar?
I did <:-). It's called FORMATTING-GRAPH-FROM-ROOTS, and it's in CLIM
1.1. When I was working on it, I discovered that DW:FORMATTING-GRAPH,
DW:FORMATTING-GRAPH-NODE, and DW:CONNECT-GRAPH-NODE turned out not to be
necessary, since the new CLIM grapher seems to provide enough control to
subsume them. I converted all of my old programs that used those DW
functions to CLIM, and they all work.
Does this actually draw graphs, or does it still convert graphs to trees by
replicating nodes as was done in earlier versions of CLIM?
It draws directed acyclic graphs.
