LoadEdgeListStr

LoadEdgeListStr(GraphType, InFNm, SrcColId=0, DstColId=1)

Loads a (directed, undirected or multi) graph from a text file InFNm with 1 edge per line (whitespace separated columns, int node ids).

InFNm is a whitespace separated file of several columns: ... <source node name> ... <destination node name> ... Since the function assumes each line of the file encodes a single edge and a line in the file can have more than 2 columns, SrcColId and DstColId must be provided to indicate which column gives the source and which column gives the destination of the edge. The node ids given in the file can be arbitrary strings. Note that the mapping of node names to ids is discarded.

Parameters:

  • GraphType: graph class (input)

    Class of output graph – one of PNGraph, PNEANet, or PUNGraph.

  • InFNm: string (input)

    Filename with the description of the graph edges.

  • SrcColId: int (input)

    The column number in the file, which contains the node id representing the source vertex.

  • DstColId: int (input)

    The column number in the file, which contains the node id representing the destination vertex.

Return value:

  • graph

    A Snap.py graph or a network represented by the InFNm of type GraphType.

The following example shows how to load the following from a text file, wiki-vote.txt from http://snap.stanford.edu/data/wiki-Vote.html, where node IDs are strings:

import snap

G = snap.LoadEdgeListStr(snap.PNGraph, "Wiki-Vote.txt", 0, 1)
print "Number of Nodes: %d" % G.GetNodes()

G = snap.LoadEdgeListStr(snap.PUNGraph, "Wiki-Vote.txt", 0, 1)
print "Number of Nodes: %d" % G.GetNodes()

G = snap.LoadEdgeListStr(snap.PNEANet, "Wiki-Vote.txt", 0, 1)
print "Number of Nodes: %d" % G.GetNodes()
