DESCRIPTION
       libxdot provides support for parsing and deparsing graphical operations
       specificed by the xdot language.

   Types
     xdot
       This encapsulates a series of cnt xdot operations, stored in the array
       pointed to by ops. The sz indicates the size of each item stored in
       ops. If the user sets the freefunc field, this function will be called
       on each item in ops during freeXDot before the library does its own
       clean up of the item. This allows the user to free any resources stored
       in the item by using an expansion of the xdot_op structure.

     xdot_op
       A value of this type represents one xdot operation. The operation is
       specified by the kind field. The corresponding data is stored in the
       union u, with the subfield associated with a given kind indicated by
       the comments.

       The drawfunc field allows the user to attach a drawing-specific
       function to the operation, providing an object-based interface. These
       functions can be automatically attached during parsing by providing a
       non-NULL second argument to parseXDotF.

     xop_kind
       This type provides an enumeration of the allowed xdot operations.  See
           http://www.graphviz.org/doc/info/output.html#d:xdot
       for the specific semantics associated with each operation.

     xdot_rect
       This represents a rectangle. For ellipses, the x and x fields represent
       the center of the rectangle, and w and h give the half-width and half-
       height, respectively.  For images, (x,y) gives the lower left corner of
       the rectangle, and w and h give the width and height, respectively.

     xdot_polyline
       This type encapsulates a series of cnt points.

     xdot_text
       A value of this type corresponds to printing the string text using the
       baseline point (x,y).  The width field gives an approximation of how
       wide the printed string will be using the current font and font size.
       The align field indicates how the text should be horizontally aligned
       with the point (x,y).

     xdot_image
       This denotes the insertion of an image. The image source is given by
       name. The images is to be placed into the rectangle pos.

     xdot_font
       The fields give the name and size, in points, of a font.

     xdot_align
       This enumeration type corresponds to the xdot alignment values -1, 0
       and 1 used with the text operator, or '\l', '\n' and '\r' used in dot
       text.

   Functions
     xdot* parseXDotF (char *str, drawfunc_t* opfns, int sz)
       Parses the string str as a sequence of xdot operations and returns a
       pointer to the resulting xdot structure.  The function parses as many
       xdot operations as it can. If some unknown or incorrect input was
       encountered in str, the ops and cnt fields will reflect the operations
       parsed before the error, and the XDOT_PARSE_ERROR bit will be set in
       the flags field.  The function returns NULL if it cannot parse
       anything.

       If sz is non-zero, it is assumed to be the size of some structure type
       containing xdot_op as a prefix. In this case, the elements in the array
       pointed to by ops will each have size sz.

       If opfns is non-zero, it is taken to be any array of functions indexed
       by xop_kind. During parsing, the drawfunc member of xop_op will be set
       to the corresponding function in opfns.

     xdot* parseXDot (char *str)
       This is equivalent to parseXDotF(str, 0, 0) .

     void freeXDot (xdot* xp)
       This frees the resources associated with the argument.  If xp is NULL,
       nothing happens.

     extern char* sprintXDot (xdot* xp)
     extern void fprintXDot (FILE* fp, xdot* xp)
       These two functions deparse the argument xdot structure, producing a
       string representation. fprintXDot writes the output onto the open
       stream fp; sprintXDot returns a heap-allocated string.


BUGS
       Although some small checking is done on the sz argument to parseXDotF,
       it is assumed it is a valid value from sizeof applied to some structure
       type containing xdot_op as its first field. There can be no validation
       of the opfns argument.
