## sccmap: extract strongly connected components of directed graphs

## NAME

sccmap - extract strongly connected components of directed graphs

## SYNOPSIS

**sccmap**[

**-dsv**] [

**-o**

*outfile*] [

*files*]

## DESCRIPTION

*sccmap*decomposes digraphs into strongly connected components and an auxiliary map of the relationship between components. In this map, each component is collapsed into a node. The resulting graphs are printed to standard out. The number of nodes, edges and strongly connected components are printed to standard error.

**sccmap**is a way of partitioning large graphs into more manageable pieces.

## OPTIONS

The following options are supported:**-d**- Preserve degenerate components of only one node.
**-s**- Do not print the resulting graphs. Only the statistics are important.
**-S**- Just print the resulting graphs. No statistics are printed.
**-o***output*-
Prints output to the file
*output*. If not given,**sccmap**uses stdout. **-v**-
Generate additional statistics. In particular,
**sccmap**prints the number of nodes, edges, connected components, and strongly connected components, followed by the fraction of nodes in a non-trivial strongly connected components, the maximum degree of the graph, and fraction of non-tree edges in the graph.

## OPERANDS

The following operand is supported:*files*-
Names of files containing 1 or more graphs in dot format.
If no
*files*operand is specified, the standard input will be used.

## DIAGNOSTICS

**sccmap**emits a warning if it encounters an undirected graph, and ignores it.
