in reply to Finding connected components in a graph.

I haven't read YAML before, (Data::Dumper is nice and perl-y), so I'm partly guessing at the structure here.

@subgraphs looks like a list of the connected components. Pick one element of the array, and you're looking at one subgraph.

The number of connected components is just 0+@subgraphs.

    Hi there, As per your suggestion I added these two lines, but as you can see in the output section the results are totally invalid.
    print "First connected component == $subgraphs[1]\n"; print "Number of connected components== $#subgraphs\n";
    5 ----connected components--------------- - - c - b - a - - e - d First connected component == ARRAY(0x9a8e308) Number of connected components== 1

      Yes. The subgraph is an array reference. Dig in! foreach my element (@{ $subgraphs[0] }) {...}

      As expected, the last index in your two element array is 1. The other index is 0. As I wrote, you want to print 0+@subgraphs, or more explicitly, scalar(@subgraphs).
