## Boost Graph Library (BGL)

The Boost Graph Library is a c++ library for graph theoretic data structures and algorithms. There are several examples here: Boost Graph Library Examples

### Wish List

Examples in this section are either shells or something is wrong with them that must be fixed before they can graduate into real examples.
