Hi all,

I am trying to find the cycles in a graph, more speifically a complete 
graph. The function FindCycle, available in the Discrete Math package 
finds one cycle that is present in the graph and the function 
ExtractCycles, extracts a cycle, deletes that cycle and trys to find 
more cycles in the deleted cycle graph.

I was wondering if there was some routine that somone here happened to 
have that could compute and display all the cycles in an undirected 
complete graph. For Example, if I had a complete graph of 4 vertices, 
then the cycles for the same would be:
