The Rgraphviz package index says nothing about reading "dot" files. (it has "toFile" to write them but no fromFile). How do I create an Ragraph object?

Must be one of 'graphvizCapabilities()$layoutTypes'. layout: logical(1) indicating whether 'graphLayout' is to be called on the result of file input. Details: These function are wrappers to agwrite() and agread() calls in Graphviz.

The segfault probably comes from Graphviz, suggesting that igraph has produced an invalid file. It would of course be nice for us to catch the exception, but I am not sure I have resources to fix this.

I attached the file to the message you are replying to, but, apparently, bioconductor stripped it. Here you go again: -------------- next part -------------- PS.

Yes, it might be an igraph bug, as http://www.graphviz.org/doc/info/lang.html says that node ids cannot start with numbers and the files igraph exports they are just numbers. I am wondering how this ever worked. Gabor [...]

Well, I was a little too quick. Numbers are actually allowed as IDs in dot files. So I have no idea why the file should be invalid. Gabor [...]

I have fixed the ~ issue in Rgraphviz devel. I have provided a couple of checks that catches trying to plot a graph with zero number of edges, but idoes not fix the issue of agreed(layout = TRUE) which is the default and which caused the segfault. Fixing this requires more tinkering due to the class hierarchy. Since I kind of want to fix the class hierarchy anyway in Rgraphviz, I have decided to postpone this. I still believe that the file is somehow invalid because it is not being parsed by dot from Graphviz, so I consider this to be an igraph problem.

I got the files, thanks. I can confirm the crash, but I also get > tmp = agread("country-graph.dot", layout = FALSE) > tmp [1] "A graph with 0 nodes." (it crashes with layout=TRUE, presumably because it thinks there are zero nodes). I also get a crash when I used command-line dot from Graphviz 2.28.0. I'll look some more, but my guess still stands: it is an invalid dot file.
