Showing your personal style

Starting in a version of DNSSEC-Tools beyond 1.4.1 (ie, it will be in mapper 1.1) is the ability to completely control what the output looks like. The following options were used to create the grayscale picture in the gallery below. The mapper 1.1 manual page will have more details about using the options.

 --edge-style=CNAME:style=dashed:color=.9,0,.1/NSEC:style=dotted:color=.9,0,.1   
 --node-style=root:fillcolor=.9,0,1/A:shape=rectangle:fillcolor=.9,0,.9/CNAME:shape=diamond:fillcolor=.9,0,.8
