Subject: Re: [Boost-users] Default weight map doesn't work for weighted grid graph in A-star search

A-Star-Maze solver <> is pretty much
done. The filtered_graph does make the code a lot simpler. I used
lexical_cast and Boost's random number facilities, but decided the Boost
command line processing code was overkill for this example.

The warnings you added about not subclassing BGL types look good.

Two things that look like documentation errors:

   1. On the A*
the examine_vertex prototype for the visitor is listed as
   vis.examine_vertex(u, g), but you actually need it to
   be vis.examine_vertex(u, const g) in order for the code the build. (This
   may be true for the other visitor functions as well.) This tripped me up
   when I first wrote my visitor class. I'm not sure if you want to specify
   the constants here, or let them be assumed.
   2. The grid graph indexing
   states that you get a vertex index with get(boost::vertex_index,
   vertex_descriptor, const Graph&). The order of the last two parameters is
   switched. The header actually specifies get(boost::vertex_index, const
   Graph&, vertex_descriptor). This appears to be the case in the
   documentation for a number of the get(...) functions.
