Description

VIMDOT(1)                   General Commands Manual                  VIMDOT(1)



NAME
       vimdot - Combined text editor and dot viewer

SYNOPSIS
       vimdot [file]

DESCRIPTION
       vimdot  is  a simple script which launches the gvim or vim editor along
       with a GUI window showing the dot output of the edited file.   The  dot
       output  window  automatically  refreshes everytime the file is saved in
       the editor.

       If no filename is given, vimdot will use 'noname.gv' and initialise  it
       with an example graph to get you started.

       The  GUI  window  (provided by "dot -Txlib") supports zooming using the
       mouse scroll-wheel, and panning by holding the  scroll-wheel  down  and
       dragging.
