Summary description: Convert graphs generated by Graphviz to LaTeX 
  friendly formats
License type: dfsg

Announcement text: 
Dot2tex is a tool for converting graphs rendered by Graphviz to formats
that can be used with LaTeX.

The purpose of dot2tex is to give graphs generated by Graphviz a more
LaTeX friendly look and feel. This is accomplished by converting xdot
output from Graphviz to a series of TikZ and PGF, or PSTricks commands.
This approach allows:

   * Typesetting labels with LaTeX, allowing mathematical notation.
   * Using native PSTricks and PGF/TikZ commands for drawing arrows.
   * Using backend specific styles to customize the output

New in version 2.7.0 is the --codeonly option for tighter integration 
with the dot2texi.sty LaTeX package
