May not exactly be what you're looking for, but I have used the TeX `xypic' package, which comes with `print/teTeX', for drawing directed graphs. From your other messages, I understand your graphs have a large number of vertices. I don't know how `xypic' scales for large graphs. The ones I've used it for were quite small. Moreover, the input format for `xypic' is similar to a matrix in LaTeX. The package essentially views the graph as a matrix, each of whose entries is a label for a vertex together with vectors that represent the edges starting from that vertex. Raghu. -- N.
