Convert graphNEL objects from the graph package to igraph


The graphNEL class is defined in the graph package, it is another way to represent graphs. graph_from_graphnel() takes a graphNEL graph and converts it to an igraph graph. It handles all graph/vertex/edge attributes. If the graphNEL graph has a vertex attribute called ‘name’ it will be used as igraph vertex attribute ‘name’ and the graphNEL vertex names will be ignored.


graph_from_graphnel(graphNEL, name = TRUE, weight = TRUE, unlist.attrs = TRUE)



The graphNEL graph.


Logical scalar, whether to add graphNEL vertex names as an igraph vertex attribute called ‘name’.


Logical scalar, whether to add graphNEL edge weights as an igraph edge attribute called ‘weight’. (graphNEL graphs are always weighted.)


Logical scalar. graphNEL attribute query functions return the values of the attributes in R lists, if this argument is TRUE (the default) these will be converted to atomic vectors, whenever possible, before adding them to the igraph graph.


Because graphNEL graphs poorly support multiple edges, the edge attributes of the multiple edges are lost: they are all replaced by the attributes of the first of the multiple edges.


graph_from_graphnel() returns an igraph graph object.
