GRF is a data directory which contains examples of GRF files. GRF files are used to store an embedding of an abstract graph. The abstract graph comprises a set of nodes, and edges that connect some pairs of nodes. The embedding assigns a position to each node, and draws edges as straight lines between the nodes.
The original format derives from the SPREMB package developed at the University of Queensland, Australia.
There are three variations on the file format. For all the formats, lines beginning with the "#" character are comment lines (this is a modification I added, but it's easy to strip such lines out if you don't want them.) We assume that the nodes of the graph are numbered, with a typical node numbered I. Information about node I is stored on the I-th noncomment line of the file. (It is not actually necessary that the I-th node be listed on the I-th noncomment line, but it is customary.) Edges of the graph that begin at node I will be described by listing the nodes at the terminal end of the edge. Thus, if there are edges from node I to nodes J(1), J(2), ..., J(K), then these nodes will be listed.
The I-th noncomment line of the file is
I X(I) Y(I) J(1) J(2) ... J(K)where X(I) and Y(I) are the coordinates of a point used to represent the node in a drawing. All point coordinates should be between 0 and 1.
