Hi,

when I look at the error, I see that it complains about remove_edge().
However, I don't see any call of this in your example code. So I would suggest
that you either post a complete and short "working" example, or more carefully
select the lines that you post.

Concerning the question in the title of your post, one way to check if there
is an edge between two vertices could be to get the adjacent vertices of
Vertex b and check if Vertex d is among them, or even to check if Vertex b has
any adjacent vertices at all. I know, this is probably not the nicest solution
but unless you don't use an AdjacencyMatrix graph, I don't know if this would
even be possible in a nicer way, so to say in O(1).

Best,

Cedric
