I already have all the coordinates for the nodes and edges of my graph and just want to use dot, neato, or dotty to render it. How?

Put the graph with layout attributes into a dot file. Then run neato -s -n2. For example:

  • neato -s -n2 -Tgif file.dot -o file.gif

Note that if an edge does not have a pos attribute defined, neato will perform whatever edge routing it would normally do. All of the usual backend attributes (size, overlap, page, etc.) are available.
