Summary0001271: Multi-image output to non-PS formats for multi-layer graph
Description



It would be useful to output a multi-layer graph into a sequence of images (one per a layer).
In particular, this feature would allow to use output formats that do not support multi-page content.



Also, it would be also useful to have a command line option that specifies a particular layer for output.



Thanks,
Max
Additional Information

You can generate multiple layer images into any output format that allows multiple images. At the moment this is -Tps
and -Tswf (if graphviz is built with libming). I think SVG could support multiple pages, but thats not implemented yet.

-Tpng doesn't support multiple images in a single file, AFAIK. Some possibilies:
<CD>
      - extend funtionality of -O to generate a uniquely named png image file for each layer.
      - add support for -Tmng
      - add support for the animated GIF format (what is it called?)
      - extend SVG support to multiple pages.
</CD>
All these options just require some coding. All the hooks are in place at the plugin interface to provide layers to
any format that can handle them.

For now I recommend that you use -Tps for layered, or other multipage, graphs.
