GNU GPL Free C++ directed graph layout library

This is a GNU GPL Free stand-alone C++ Graph Layout Library based on GNU GPL Version 3 Free Mipt-Vis tool from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology( MIPT)
This project is another reincarnation of the Mipt-Vis project.

To compile:

To clean: make clean
make distclean
make cleaner

To indent sources: make indent

Version 1: initial with minimal InitCoordinates() routine to be improved
Version 2: in development

The directory src/test2 has the gtk+ gui program miptgml for use with gml graph data
The directory src/test1 and test2 has example programs how to use this graph layout library.
The source is documented for use with the doxygen program generating html documentation.
The dmake script can be usd to get a log file of the make process
This library has own routines for hierarchial graph layout and does not depend on graphviz or other libs
This library has a c interface to use it with normal c source code
The Graph and Layout directory does not depend on qt5 library or other libraries
To compile this C++ with emscripten or otherwise to wasm webassembly should be possible to run it in the browser
The user interface program must copy some graph data to/from this library to make sure it does not depend on qt5
Because multiple graphs can be layouted independent at once it can be used to layout bigger graph with subgraphs
There are almost no C++ libraries for graph layout with sugiyama algorithm but other GPL Free ones are ogdf, graphlhet and igraph
For drawing the flowcanvs or ganv C++ gtk+ drawing routines can be used for a good looking image

Note that the only way to do good, efficient, and system-level and portable C++ ends up to limit yourself to all the things that are basically available in C.

Most so called graph layout programs are only spring embedder layout or drawing programs.

make indent uses clang-format to format the c++ source
it needs a specialized university study to understand how this works at some parts
