Funny dependency graphs
I explored various ways to create dependency graphs using free tools only. So far we had to use
proprietary software and as I wanted to see the dependency graph of modules in OpenOffice.org,
I decided to see what free software or open-source tools are available.
The third tool I tried was Graphviz
. It is really powerful -
for example graphs.
The result of my work is a simple shell script
files and generates a graph
from them (it can generate
many formats, but I generated PostScript
Of course, several minor issues are there ;-) As always. The graph contains also StarOffice only
) and they stand-up
from other stuff, module
depends on module
StarOffice. Very interesting module is
. My build on GNU/Linux never enters
it. Its size is 7.2MB etc.
The visualization is only approximative. I'd like to print it, but it looks like it is harder than
I thought :-)
