Sure, but none of those actually implement what I need. The last one returns a data structure that can be used to compose the information I need but I'd have to do the rest of the computation myself and it would run like a dog if written in Mathematica. Does Mathematica really not provide a built-in function to compute all-pairs shortest paths? Cheers, Jon.
