Suffix trees Eclipse Plug-in

I’ve made a small bugfix and am taking that occasion to blog about my little Eclipse Plug-in that automatically draws suffix trees with Dot/Graphviz for an entered text (in the context of the Suffix Trees for Natural Language project), which is installable from our update site at

The usage for this is mostly for visualization of suffix trees, e.g. for teaching or publications. The plug-in supports word- and letter-based trees as well as reversed suffix trees (‘prefix trees’). The tree can be exported in the dot format. To use the plug-in, after installing it via the update site, select Window -> Show View -> Suffix Trees for NL -> Suffix Tree Visualization.
