Subject: RE: [Caml-list] Looking for Graph Operations-library
Although I am not an accomplished functional programmer,
I would be happy to share a parameterized (functor-based)
graph module that provides basic directed graph data
structures and itterators. It allows arbitrary vertex
and edge types with the use of a functor interface. There
is also an accompanying algorithm module that currently
only implements shortest path and a skeleton function.
Let me know it sounds useful. I included the signature
below (sorry for the extra length). Performance is good
even though the vertex and edge maps are purely functional.
A pretty printer uses the graphviz "dot" format. Sorry
there is no parser :-(

Cheers, Chris
