GEXF (Gephi graph format) import plugin

This plugin allow to import graphs in Tulip saved in the GEXF file format, proper to Gephi, another Graph visualization software. The plugin is able to import graph structure but also attributes associated to nodes and edges. The visual properties (color, label, size, position) are also parsed. Last but not least, an option allows edges shapes to be curved the same way Gephi does.

The commented source code of this plugin is attached to this tutorial in a .tgz archive.  To compile it, you need to have a proper installation of Tulip and the path to the "tulip-config" script must be in your PATH system variable.
