Use this if you are using igraph from R

In weighted graphs, a real number is assigned to each (directed or undirected) edge.

is_weighted(graph)

`graph` |
The input graph. |

In igraph edge weights are represented via an edge attribute, called
‘weight’. The `is_weighted`

function only checks that such an
attribute exists. (It does not even checks that it is a numeric edge
attribute.)

Edge weights are used for different purposes by the different functions. E.g. shortest path functions use it as the cost of the path; community finding methods use it as the strength of the relationship between two vertices, etc. Check the manual pages of the functions working with weighted graphs for details.

A logical scalar.
