grf_io
grf_io,
a Python code which
reads or writes a GRF file containing information about
an abstract graph.
The file includes information about

adjacency, that is, which nodes are connected to a given node;

embedding, that is, how to place each node in the unit square so that
a drawing of the graph is visually pleasing and "readable".
