Subject: [Boost-users] [Graph]questions regarding boost::graph::adjacency_list constructor prototype
From: Tan, Tom (Shanghai) (TTan_at_[hidden])

While studying boost.graph, I stumbled upon this constructor definition:

    template <class EdgeIterator>

    adjacency_list(EdgeIterator first, EdgeIterator last,

                          vertices_size_type n,

                          edges_size_type = 0,

                          const GraphProperty& p = GraphProperty())

      : Base(n, first, last), m_property(new graph_property_type(p))

{ }

I have 2 questions here:

- What does "edges_size_type = 0," means here? Assigning a
value to a TYPE, instead of a parameter? Can anyone please point me to
an explanation of this grammar usage?

- Why the necessary of edges_size_type = 0 parameter, since
there's a range pair of "EdgeIterator first, EdgeIterator last"?


Does anyone have an answer? Thanks.
