# dot2tex – Convert graphs generated by Graphviz to LaTeX friendly formats

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; and
- Using backend specific styles to customize the output.
