Graph::Layout::Aesthetic::Force::NodeEdgeRepulsion - Nodes and edges repel each other
use Graph::Layout::Aesthetic; $aglo = Graph::Layout::Aesthetic->new($topology); $aglo->add_force("NodeEdgeRepulsion", 1);
The aesthetic force is that it tries to not place nodes close to edges. It does this by imagining a line through the edge endpoints and finding the point on the line closest to the node under consideration. If this point is between the two edge endpoints there is a force between them that's the inverse of their distance.
This class inherits from Graph::Layout::Aesthetic::Force and adds no methods of its own.
