generate_edgelist(G, delimiter=' ', data=True)[source]

Generate a single line of the graph G in edge list format.

Parameters
  • G (NetworkX graph)

  • delimiter (string, optional) – Separator for node labels

  • data (bool or list of keys) – If False generate no edge data. If True use a dictionary representation of edge data. If a list of keys use a list of data values corresponding to the keys.

Returns

lines – Lines of data in adjlist format.

Return type

string

Examples

>>> G = nx.lollipop_graph(4, 3)
>>> G[1][2]['weight'] = 3
>>> G[3][4]['capacity'] = 12
