UML (Unified Modeling Language) class diagrams, which are widely used for specifying aspects of object-oriented software systems, can be laid out by our tool SugiBib. In 1998 J. Seemann described how to apply the Sugiyama algorithm to class diagrams and the first version of SugiBib was implemented as a masters thesis.
