# all_simple_paths

##### List all simple paths from one source

This function lists are simple paths from one source vertex to another vertex or vertices. A path is simple if the vertices it visits are not visited more than once.

- Keywords
- graphs

##### Usage

```
all_simple_paths(graph, from, to = V(graph), mode = c("out", "in",
"all", "total"))
```

##### Arguments

- graph
The input graph.

- from
The source vertex.

- to
The target vertex of vertices. Defaults to all vertices.

- mode
Character constant, gives whether the shortest paths to or from the given vertices should be calculated for directed graphs. If

`out`

then the shortest paths*from*the vertex, if`in`

then*to*it will be considered. If`all`

, the default, then the corresponding undirected graph will be used, ie. not directed paths are searched. This argument is ignored for undirected graphs.

##### Details

Note that potentially there are exponentially many paths between two vertices of a graph, and you may run out of memory when using this function, if your graph is lattice-like.

This function currently ignored multiple and loop edges.

##### Value

A list of integer vectors, each integer vector is a path from the source vertex to one of the target vertices. A path is given by its vertex ids.

##### Examples

```
# NOT RUN {
g <- make_ring(10)
all_simple_paths(g, 1, 5)
all_simple_paths(g, 1, c(3,5))
# }
```
