NAME

       rpmgraph - Display RPM Package Dependency Graph


SYNOPSIS

       rpmgraph PACKAGE_FILE ...



DESCRIPTION

       rpmgraph  uses  PACKAGE_FILE arguments to generate a package dependency
       graph. Each PACKAGE_FILE argument is read and added to an rpm  transac-
       tion  set.  The  elements  of the transaction set are partially ordered
       using a topological sort.  The  partially  ordered  elements  are  then
       printed to standard output.

       Nodes  in  the  dependency  graph  are  package names, and edges in the
       directed graph point to the parent of each node.  The  parent  node  is
       defined  as  the  last  predecessor of a package when partially ordered
       using the package dependencies as a relation. That means that the  par-
       ent of a given package is the package’s last prerequisite.

       The  output is in dot(1) directed graph format, and can be displayed or
       printed using the dotty graph editor from the graphviz package.   There
       are  no  rpmgraph  specific  options, only common rpm options.  See the
       rpmgraph usage message for what is currently implemented.
