PlatformOSx86-Linux-rh7.1OS Version
Summary0001028: dotty doesn't work under rh7.1 OS
Description



When i invoke dotty on a legal dot file, the following error message shows:
graph parser: syntax error near line 14
context: >>> <<< digraph G {
dotty.lefty: giving up on dot
dotty.lefty: graph that causes dot
dotty.lefty: to fail has been saved in file dottybug.dot
dotty.lefty: please fill out a bug report at http://www.research.att.com/~erg/graphviz/bugform.html [^]



Now, the dot file has only 13 lines, and other users on the same machine can view
this file using dotty, after they login, but i can't.
Through Windows OS, i can see this file using dotty.



What file/enviromnet variable in my home directory causes this problem?



Thanks a lot
Additional Information

[ellson] Please send the .dot file that causes the problem.

What version info does "dot -V" show?

Where did you get RH7.1 rpms from? Or was graphviz built locally from source?

The parser error above seems to indicate a problem before the keyword "digraph".
If your dot is very old it might not recognize the UTF8 BOM character (ByteOrderMark)
that later versions of dot can accept at the beginning of the file.

[erg] I don't know if this has been resolved but another possibility, especially as the same dot and
file works for others in your machine, is to make sure that when a non-interactive shell is created,
no output is produced. Sometimes people have output-producing commands in a startup file like .profile
or .alias. The output gets into the pipe to the dot parser, which reports an error message. See, for
example,
