Title: Layouts other than 'dot' seem broken in tcldot due to documentation error
Submitter: Vaclav Hanzl
Date: Sun Apr 27 15:54:46 2008
Subsys: Tcl/Tk utilities
Version: all, incl. cvs
System: *-*-all
Severity: major
Problem:
In graphviz2/tclpkg/tcldot/tcldot.n, using other layout engines than dot is documented like this:

layout DOT|NEATO|CIRCO|TWOPI|FDP|NOP

and when used like this, it does not work and user gets impression of bug 1089. However, other layouts do work, but their names should be lowercase, e.g.:

layout neato

etc. Unfortunately, at least under Debian stable version there is no error message, user trying to do "layout NEATO" just gets result for "layout dot". (On the other hand, user gets proper error message in gv_tcl, including list of possibilities: circo dot fdp neato nop nop1 nop2 twopi)

Documentation error is present in CVS as of Apr 27 2008. I suggest to look for string "NEATO" in tcldot.n and change keywords to lowercase.
Fix: Look for string "NEATO" in tcldot.n and change keywords to lowercase.
