Hi Jeremiah Willcock,
Thanks for your reply.
Sad to say the pararallel version BFS example file (\boost_1_53_0_\libs\graph_parallel\example\breadth_first_search.cpp) can not be compiled with VS2010 on my end. It complains an unresolved external symbol "void _cdecl boost::bfs_helper....". And I found a similar report on http://boost.2283326.n4.nabble.com/LINKErrorwhilebuildingPBGLexamplebreadthfirstsearchcpptd3799909.html. but with no result.
I also tried to build the boost with MinGW, but it seems the Boost.MPI cannot be compiled correctly upon MPICH2, so the parallel BGL library will not be built either.
Any sugguestions will be appreciated.
Thanks.

It looks like it's similar to the directed DFS, so it would likely return
the same results.

It doesn't look like there is one, but you can use breadthfirst search to
find cycles as well. Would that work for you?
