How can I visualize more than one node (namespace) with rxgraph? For example:

rxgraph --nodens={\node1 \node2 \node3}
edit retag flag offensive close merge delete

I doubt it can do a list of namespaces, but you can run it in the root namespace (/). Then it should see everything.

joq is correct, the feature requested is not implemented, unless I implemented it by accident. If you really need this feature, the source is there for hacking.

If for documentation only, you may use rxgraph to convert each needed namespace to a graphviz dot file, see usage:

Then you might merge those (simple, readable) dot files into one, and convert it to pdf afterwards.

The root namespace is too occupied. I thought that it would be nice for documetation, to see only a few interesting nodes and thier links.
