AfterGlow

AfterGlow is a collection of scripts which facilitate the process of generating link graphs. The tool is written in Perl and needs to be invoked via the command line. Sorry, there is no graphical interface, however using the tool is quite simple. As input, AfterGlow expects a CSV file. The file can either contain two or three columns of data. A common way of generating the CSV files are parsers which take a raw input file, analyze it and output a comma separated list of records based on the data they found. The output of AfterGlow is one of two formats. Either it generates a dot attributed graph language file - the input required by the graphviz library - or it can generate GDF files that can, for example, be visualized with Gephi.
