Package providing frames visualization tool.

How to use

view_frames is a graphical debugging tool that creates a PDF graph of your current transform tree.

$ rosrun tf2_tools

You probably want to view the graph when you are done, so a typical usage on Ubuntu systems is:

$ rosrun tf2_tools
$ evince frames.pdf

Therefore an helpful shortcut to add in your .bashrc is:

alias tf2='cd /var/tmp && rosrun tf2_tools && evince frames.pdf &'
