## Documentation

The graph-bfs library is an implementation of breadth-first search on a graph object that follows the API of e.g. the digraph egg.

### Breadth-first-search procedures

`graph-bfs-foreach:`procedureBreadth-first search iterator; given a list of initial nodes,

`ROOTS`, the successors of each initial node are visited in breadth-first search order, and procedures`FNODE`and`FEDGE`are applied to each node or edge, respectively, as the graph is traversed.`FNODE`is of the form`LAMBDA N -> _`where`N`is node number; and`FEDGE`is of the form`LAMBDA EDGE`where`EDGE`is a list of the form`(I J INFO)`;`I`and`J`are the nodes defining the edge, and`INFO`is edge metadata.

`graph-bfs-fold:`procedureBreadth-first search iterator with state; given a list of initial nodes,

`ROOTS`, and initial node state and edge state,`NODE-INIT`and`EDGE-INIT`the successors of each initial node are visited in breadth-first search order, and procedures`FNODE`and`FEDGE`are applied to each node and the node state, or edge and the edge state, respectively, as the graph is traversed.`FNODE`is of the form`LAMBDA N NODE-STATE -> NODE-STATE`where`N`is node number, and NODE-STATE can be of arbitrary type and must of the same type as`NODE-INIT`.`FEDGE`is of the form`LAMBDA EDGE EDGE-STATE`where`EDGE`is a list of the form`(I J INFO)`;`I`and`J`are the nodes defining the edge, and`INFO`is edge metadata;`EDGE-STATE`must be of the same type as`EDGE-INIT`

`graph-bfs-dist:`procedureBreadth-first search distance; this procedure computes BFS maximum distance from a root node for all successors of the given initial nodes, and the maximum distance from root across all nodes traversed. The node distances are returned in an SRFI-4 vector of type

`S32VECTOR`and`MAX-DIST`is the maximum distance computed.

## Examples

;; example adapted from graph example in the Boost library documentation (use srfi-1 digraph graph-bfs) (define g (make-digraph 'depgraph "dependency graph")) (define used-by (list (cons 'dax_h 'foo_cpp) (cons 'dax_h 'bar_cpp) (cons 'dax_h 'yow_h) (cons 'yow_h 'bar_cpp) (cons 'yow_h 'zag_cpp) (cons 'boz_h 'bar_cpp) (cons 'boz_h 'zig_cpp) (cons 'boz_h 'zag_cpp) (cons 'zow_h 'foo_cpp) (cons 'foo_cpp 'foo_o) (cons 'foo_o 'libfoobar_a) (cons 'bar_cpp 'bar_o) (cons 'bar_o 'libfoobar_a) (cons 'libfoobar_a 'libzigzag_a) (cons 'zig_cpp 'zig_o) (cons 'zig_o 'libzigzag_a) (cons 'zag_cpp 'zag_o) (cons 'zag_o 'libzigzag_a) (cons 'libzigzag_a 'killerapp))) (define node-list (delete-duplicates (concatenate (list (map car used-by) (map cdr used-by))))) (define node-ids (list-tabulate (length node-list) values)) (for-each (lambda (i n) ((g 'add-node!) i n)) node-ids node-list) (define node-map (zip node-list node-ids)) (for-each (lambda (e) (match e ((ni . nj) (let ((i (car (alist-ref ni node-map))) (j (car (alist-ref nj node-map)))) ((g 'add-edge!) (list i j (format "~A->~A" ni nj))))) (else (error "invalid edge " e)))) used-by) (define roots (map car ((g 'roots)))) (graph-bfs-foreach g (lambda (n) (print (format "node ~A; " n))) (lambda (e) (print (format "edge ~A; " e))) roots) (graph-bfs-fold g (lambda (n ax) (cons (list 'node n) ax)) (lambda (e ax) (cons (list 'edge e) ax)) roots (list) (list))
