GraphTheory help needed

	I am a mathematics student studying Graph Theory.  I would
very much like to be able to generate the graphs (which until now
I had drawn tediously by hand) by computer.  I have been told that
Mathematica might help, but I can find nothing of use to me in any
of the texts I have encountered so far.
	I would like to know if there is some program/package
availible which would, e.g., generate all bipartite multigraphs with
preassigned degrees, certain edges required, and certain edges
forbidden.  Even if someone told me that this will be very difficult,
that information would be welcome.  Alternately, surely there is
some easy way of depicting a given graph from its adjacency matrix.
Perhaps, if I were to generate adjacency matrices, they could then
be "processed" into visual representations.  
	(My library is currently searching for Steven Skiena's
_Implementing_Discrete_Mathematics_: _Combinatorics_and_Graph_Theory_
_with_Mathematica_.  Is anyone familiar with this book?  Will this
meet my needs?)
	Please feel free to reply by e-mail or talk if you wish.
(The address above is not correct, I am not at cerc.)
		Thank you for your time.
