Thanks for your help. Getting a little closer.
Once I get the edge properties working I'll look at traversal concepts other
than AdjacencyGraphs. So far this has been the easy part for me.
I have been looking at the grid graph, but I couldn't figure out how to add
weights to the edges of a grid graph. I can't find a simple example of an
implicit graph with properties. (Which is why I'm trying to write one now.)
What do you mean by "Write an empty struct that inherits from all of the
ones that you are going to model"? I didn't think there were concept base
classes to inherit from.
Changing the property typedef in the implicit graph struct to
typedef boost::property<boost::edge_weight_t, float> edge_property_type;
making the get() functions take constant graph object references, and
checking against the ReadablePropertyGraphConcept improves the compilation.
I now no longer have pages of errors, which makes me think I'm on the right
track.
I still have two errors, both of which I'm confused about.
1. graph_concepts.hpp:390: error: conversion from â€˜EdgeWeightMapâ€™ to
nonscalar type â€˜boost::typed_identity_property_map<size_t>â€™ requested
This is the same as before. This error makes me feel like I've got the
wrong return value for one of my get() functions, but after doublechecking
they look right.
2. property_map.hpp:318: error: no match for â€˜operator[]â€™ in â€˜(const
boost::typed_identity_property_map<size_t>&)((const
boost::typed_identity_property_map<size_t>*)(& pa))[k]â€™
I didn't think any concept required operator[], so I'm not sure why this is
happening. Line 318 is inside the inline get() function of
the put_get_helper(), but I'm not using put_get_helper() in my code.
