Summary0001310: Layouts other than 'dot' seem broken in tcldot due to documentation error
Description



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.
