your problem is not well defined, but the demonstrated results can be achieved with a recursive function:

use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dumper; $|=1; my $start="B"; my $stop="E"; my %graph =( 'F' => ['B','C','E'], 'A' => ['B','C'], 'D' => ['B'], 'C' => ['A','E','F'], 'E' => ['C','F'], 'B' => ['A','E','F'] ); track($start); sub track { my @path=@_; my $last=$path[-1]; for my $next (@{$graph{$last}}) { next if $next ~~ @path; # next if grep {$_ eq $next } @path; if ($next eq $stop){ print join ("->",@path,$stop),"\n"; } else { track(@path,$next); } } }


B->A->C->E B->A->C->F->E B->E B->F->C->E B->F->E

for large graphs you should consider using a hash instead of passing an array to speed up the test.
