**Algorithm (Dijkstra's algorithm)**:

Let be a finite digraph with weight . Fix a node . Then the following algorithm computes a shortest path from any node other than to :

In C, the graph and the function shall be given by the nodes (where and ) and a weight function `double long weight(int source, int target)`

which is whenever `source`

and `target`

are not incident.

```
1 boolean nextStep[n];
2 int nextStepLength;

4 nextStepLength = 1;
5 for(k=0;k<n;k++) {
6 nextStep[k] = k;

9 int step;
10 int vNo;
11 for(step=0;step<n;step++) {
12 for(vNo = 0; vNo < nextStepLength; vNo++) {

14 }
