Subject: [Boost-users] [BGL] Question about using remove_edge() in boost graph library

Dear boost-users:

I just start learning boost graph library and have a basic problem on using
the remove_edge function in boost graph library.

I would like to remove an edge in a multigraph. For a graph with two edges
connect vertice 0 and 1, I would like to remove one of them, but kept the

According to the user guide, remove_edge(u ,v , g) removes all occurrences
of (u ,v). So I should use remove_edge(e ,g) instead. Here, e is a valid
edge descriptor.

For a single graph, g, I am able to perform both remove_edge(u ,v , g) and
remove_edge(e ,g) operation.

However, when I want to generalize the implementation to fit my need by
putting graphs in a vector container, I got segmentation fault for
remove_edge(e ,graph_list[0]). (The compiler show no warning message.) On
the other hand, remove_edge(u,v,g) works perfectly. I am not sure what's
the difference between those two syntax causes this problem.

I really want to make remove_edge(e,g) and vector container work at the
same time. So any suggestion that can help my bypass this difficulty is

Thanks a lot!!
