Create a graph from an edge list matrix

Description

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.

Usage

graph_from_edgelist(el, directed = TRUE)

from_edgelist(...)

Arguments

el

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

directed

Whether to create a directed graph.

Passed to graph_from_edgelist.
