( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Here's a solution, which I'm fairly certain works as intended (but we saw where that got me last time ;)
sub path { (*g,$f,$t)=@_;@s=map[$f,$_,$r{$_}],keys%{*r=$g{$f}}; push@s,map[@p,$_,$d+$r{$_}],keys%{*r=$g{$n}} while(@s=sort{$b->[-1]<=>$a->[-1]}@s),$d=pop@{*p=pop@s}, ($n=$p[-1])ne$t;@p }
170 characters... Yikes! I'm sure someone can do better than that!

Update: Hey, I don't need to do that complicated initialization of @s!

sub path { (*g,$f,$t)=@_;@s=[$f,0]; push@s,map[@p,$_,$d+$r{$_}],keys%{*r=$g{$n}} while(@s=sort{$b->[-1]<=>$a->[-1]}@s),$d=pop@{*p=pop@s}, ($n=$p[-1])ne$t;@p }
142 characters!

Update:

This solution will be very slow on the NYC to SF test case, because it gets stuck moving back and forth between Chicago, Cleveland, and Detroit for a while, because SF is so far away. However, it will find the solution eventually.

Of course, this could be fixed by preventing the code from moving back to a node that has already been visited, but we're optimizing for character count, not for speed of execution! ;)

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
