'[OT] State Machine Diagram Tool'

Hi All,

   Can anyone recommend a good piece of software for drawing software
state machines.  I'm increasingly needing to communicate things to
customers that become very complicated without some graphics.  I'm
trying a trial of Microsoft Visio, but I'm wondering what others like.

Thanks,

Tony

I kind of like GraphViz... it takes a text file containing a simple markup
language describing your graph, and renders it. Also, it's free.

When I asked the same question a while ago someone suggested Dia.  I've used
that on windows and it got the job done.

I like GraphViz too, as you can check the text files into revision
control somewhere.

Nice... for a state diagram, look at this:

http://www.graphviz.org/Gallery/directed/fsm.html

Probably more difficult if you have things that are more complex and
need manual tweaking of the layout.

I have no experience with any of these, but if you want/need more manual
WYSIWYG tweaking, maybe one of the results of a search for "visio
alternative freeware" helps you... :)
