C++ library that converts .dot to ascii

Hi all,

Is there a C/C++ library that can convert Graphviz .dot to ascii text output?


[I assume you are wanting ASCII output (instead of svg, png, or the like - Output Formats | Graphviz), not input]

I don’t know about libraries, but if you search the web for “ascii diagrams graphviz” or “ascii-art graphviz” or look here Graphviz and ascii output - Stack Overflow, you may find what you are after.

It might be reasonable to implement an ASCII art renderer in Graphviz. I’ve occasionally thought about such a thing and Add support for the kitty terminal graphics protocol (!3149) · Merge requests · graphviz / graphviz · GitLab is a further inspiration in this direction.
