DOT is a plain text graph description language. DOT graphs are typically files with the file extension gv or dot. The extension gv is preferred to avoid confusion with the extension dot used by early (pre-2007) versions of Microsoft Word. Read more on Wikipedia...


Example from the web:
// The graph name and the semicolons are optional graph graphname { a -- b -- c; b -- d; }
Example from Linguist:
/* Huffman Tree DOT graph. DOT Reference : http://www.graphviz.org/doc/info/lang.html http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DOT_language Timestamp : 1415989074 Phrase : 'OH GOD WHY IS LINGUIST SO ANAL ABOUT THIS STUFF' Generated on http://huffman.ooz.ie/ */ digraph G { edge [label=0]; graph [ranksep=0]; T [shape=record, label="{{T|4}|000}"]; S [shape=record, label="{{S|5}|001}"]; SPACE [shape=record, label="{{SPACE|9}|01}"]; A [shape=record, label="{{A|3}|1000}"]; H [shape=record, label="{{H|3}|1001}"]; U [shape=record, label="{{U|3}|1010}"]; L [shape=record, label="{{L|2}|10110}"]; N [shape=record, label="{{N|2}|10111}"]; I [shape=record, label="{{I|4}|1100}"]; O [shape=record, label="{{O|4}|1101}"]; G [shape=record, label="{{G|2}|11100}"]; F [shape=record, label="{{F|2}|11101}"]; GF [label=4]; W [shape=record, label="{{W|1}|111100}"]; Y [shape=record, label="{{Y|1}|111101}"]; B [shape=record, label="{{B|1}|111110}"]; D [shape=record, label="{{D|1}|111111}"]; BD [label=2]; WYBD [label=4]; GFWYBD [label=8]; 47 -> 18 -> 9 -> T; 29 -> 13 -> 6 -> A; 7 -> U; 4 -> L; 16 -> 8 -> I; GFWYBD -> GF -> G; WYBD -> 2 -> W; BD -> B;9 -> S [label=1]; 18 -> SPACE [label=1]; 6 -> H [label=1]; 13 -> 7 -> 4 -> N [label=1]; 8 -> O [label=1]; GF -> F [label=1]; 2 -> Y [label=1]; 47 -> 29 -> 16 -> GFWYBD -> WYBD -> BD -> D [label=1]; }
Example from Wikipedia:
digraph g { node [shape=plaintext]; A1 -> B1; A2 -> B2; A3 -> B3; A1 -> A2 [label=f]; A2 -> A3 [label=g]; B2 -> B3 [label="g'"]; B1 -> B3 [label="(g o f)'" tailport=s headport=s]; { rank=same; A1 A2 A3 } { rank=same; B1 B2 B3 } }
