'dot file' was new to me. It is the input format for the dot tool of
the open-source graphviz package, with binaries available for Windows,
Mac, and various *nixes. After looking at
and seeing how easy to edit the examples are, I would require a text
source file unless the result were somehow bad. Yahya, how did *you*
produce your example?

The ABCs seem to change a bit with every version.
