PNML view

PNML view logo
PNML view is a simple, open source, cross-platform viewer for PNML files (see with support for some Yasper specific features ( and extended export capabilities.



You should be able to use PNML view without a manual. More complex options and preferences are documented through tooltips and "What's this?" help.


PNML view can be downloaded and compiled from source (see Compiling) or downloaded in binary form for some platforms.


To be able to compile PNML view, you need a complete Qt 4 installation (including header files, see and scroll down to "Qt Open Source Downloads") and a working C++ compiler (such as GCC). If you have a working Qt installation and compiler, the following commands should suffice to build PNML view (download and extract the source yourself if you don't have wget or tar):
tar -xvjf pnmlview-0.3.3.tar.bz2
cd pnmlview-0.3.3


Written by Freek van Walderveen (freek -at- vanwal -dot- nl), 2005-2007. I do not maintain this program anymore because of lack of interest. If there would be any future development, I think the program should make use of QGraphicsView. This would simplify some of the drawing stuff and should not be very difficult to implement.
