Additional Information

Please keep this problem report private.



Somewhere in the graph file that you can't share with us, you have a
line that contains:

    This is done by .my_tcshrc_basic

Which, I'd guess, is not properly commented (use /*...*/ or // )

The "gvwrite_no_z problem 115" message some kind of problem during the
writing of a compressed string.

What -T output format are you using?


Since he is using dotty, it is probably getting -Txdot.

Before using dotty, just run your output through dot.

   egypt | dot > out

This will be a simpler way to clean up syntax errors than
having to go though dot and dotty.

I'd already thought of making the .my_tcshrc_basic,
which of course is the normal mode of operation,
but due to recent environmental problems it happened
to be non-verbose.

Then regarding your question about output format, I don't know
which one of the tools you refer to?

Which would be the preferred format?

Your suggestion worked fine.
Now I just need to figure how to tailor the input.
The first result of using -Tps showed up in ghostviev as a
piece of black clutter in one end of the paper.
Nice thing though is that when didn't use dotty but
dot directly I got a result that I can process further.
