Writing the graph to a file in some format

write_graph is a general function for exporting graphs to foreign file formats, however not many formats are implemented right now.

Keywords
graphs
Usage
write_graph(graph, file, format = c("edgelist", "pajek", "ncol", "lgl",
  "graphml", "dimacs", "gml", "dot", "leda"), ...)
Arguments
graph

The graph to export.

file

A connection or a string giving the file name to write the graph to.

format

Character string giving the file format. Right now pajek, graphml, dot, gml, edgelist, lgl, ncol and dimacs are implemented. As of igraph 0.4 this argument is case insensitive.

Other, format specific arguments, see below.

Value

A NULL, invisibly.

Edge list format

The edgelist format is a simple text file, with one edge in a line, the two vertex ids separated by a space character. The file is sorted by the first and the second column. This format has no additional arguments.
