redo-dot - print redo dependency graph for the current directory

redo-dot [pattern]

redo(1) is a tool for building files and for rebuilding them if any of their dependencies have changed. redo-dot prints the dependency graph for the current directory in the file format consumed by dot(1) from the Graphviz layout programs. If the current working directory is not a redo(1) build directory, redo-dot exits with a status code indicating failure.

In the dependency graph, targets and sources are represented by nodes, dependencies are represented by solid edges, and non-existence dependencies are represented by dotted edges. Targets that have impossible to satisfy dependencies have a bold outline. Targets that are rebuilt depending on input to redo-stamp(1) have a dashed outline.

A pattern contains characters that match themselves and the meta-characters “!”, “*”, “?”, and “[”, which lose their special meanings if they are quoted. Asterisks (“*”) match any string of characters. Question marks (“?”) match any single character. Left brackets (“[”) and right brackets (“]”) indicate start and end of a character class. Character classes match any characters between brackets or a range of characters specified using a minus (“-”); to include literal minus, make it the first or last character. Exclamation marks (“!”) as the first character of any character class negates it.

shows the full dependency graph in an X11 window using dot(1).
outputs a dependency graph with only nodes that match the pattern */stdio.h, dependencies of nodes that match the pattern, and nodes that depend on nodes that match the pattern.
outputs the full dependency graph into a file named, then generates a PNG (Portable Network Graphics) file named deps.png from it using dot(1). The sed(1) invocation removes the current working directory from the node names.
