SYNOPSIS
cliquer helpcliquer [ options ] graphfilename
DESCRIPTION
cliquer searched for cliques in a graph. The graph is read from the file given as command line argument, or stdin if that filename is "".The file must be ASCII as described below or a binary DIMACSformat.
By default it prints the first maximal clique it finds, but this can be changed with the options described below.
OPTIONS
 h help
 Displays a short list of options and what they do.
 a all
 Find all cliques.
 s single
 Find only one clique (default).
 w weight
 Tell only maximum weight (no faster than s).
 m N min N

Search for cliques with weight at least N.
If N=0, searches for maximum weight clique (default).
 M N max N

Search for cliques with weight at most N.
If N=0, no limit is imposed (default).
N being positive is incompatible with "min 0" ("min 1" is assumed).
 x maximal
 Require cliques to be maximal.
 u unweighted
 Assume weight 1 for all vertices.
 0 from0
 Number vertices 0 to n1 instead of 1 to n when writing.
 q quiet

Suppresses progress output.
Specifying q twice suppresses all output except the actual result.
 r F reorder F

Reorder with function F.
Available reordering functions are:

 none
 No ordering (same order as in the file).
 reverse
 Reverse order as in the file.
 default
 One of the two below, depending on weightedness.
 unweightedcoloring
 Coloring method efficient for unweighted graphs.
 weightedcoloring
 Coloring method efficient for weighted graphs.
 degree
 Order by ascending degree.
 random
 Random order.

FILE FORMAT
The format of the ASCII representation of a graph is the following: Each line has a single letter (enclosed in spaces) as first part.A line with 'p' starts the graph. The second token is a name of at most 15 characters and ignored. Then there is the number of nodes in this graph. Then the number of edges (currently ignored).
A line with 'e' adds an edge. The two next tokens are the numbers of two nodes to connect.
A line with 'n' weights an node. The first argument is the number of the node to assign a weight to, the second it's weight.
