C program to find the Shortest path for a given graph

Sunday, September 20th, 2009

OUTPUT:
enter the cost matrix :
0 1 4 2 0
0 0 0 2 3
0 0 0 3 0
0 0 0 0 5
0 0 0 0 0
enter number of paths : 4
enter possible paths :
1 2 4 5 0
1 2 5 0 0
1 4 5 0 0
1 3 4 5 0
minimum cost : 4
minimum cost path :
1–>2–>5

    hi..i found this c code after a long time search…i am doing a project work in shortest path detection… i can’t understand this..can u much detail abt this…its very helpful to me….diagramatic representation of ur eg is much better.plz do this help as soon as possible…

  2. karthik says:

    very efficient code

  3. kutti says:

    The above program is not giving the exact output as it is mentioned above..
    can anyone plz verify it……..?

  4. niks says:

    can u give me a method to generate the possible paths ??

  5. sivakomaragiri says:

    U r code is executing perfectly in borland c++ compiler and wen done in turboc2 its giving o cost o path…!!

  6. sivakomaragiri says:

    Y so??????

  7. Azmat saba says:

    this code is not sufficient for the output
