Create a graph from an edge list matrix


graph_from_edgelist creates a graph from an edge list. Its argument is a two-column matrix, each row defines one edge. If it is a numeric matrix then its elements are interpreted as vertex ids. If it is a character matrix then it is interpreted as symbolic vertex names and a vertex id will be assigned to each name, and also a name vertex attribute will be added.


graph_from_edgelist(el, directed = TRUE)




The edge list, a two column matrix, character or numeric.


Whether to create a directed graph.


Passed to graph_from_edgelist.


An igraph graph.
