## DFS Algorithm for Connected Graph

Write a C Program to implement DFS Algorithm for Connected Graph. Here’s simple Program for traversing a directed graph through Depth First Search(DFS),  visiting only those vertices that are reachable from start vertex.

## Depth First Search (DFS)

Depth First Search (DFS) algorithm traverses a graph in a depthward motion and uses a stack to remember to get the next vertex to start a search, when a dead end occurs in any iteration.

It employs the following rules.

• Rule 1 − Visit the adjacent unvisited vertex. Mark it as visited. Display it. Push it in a stack.
• Rule 2 − If no adjacent vertex is found, pop up a vertex from the stack. (It will pop up all the vertices from the stack, which do not have adjacent vertices.)
• Rule 3 − Repeat Rule 1 and Rule 2 until the stack is empty.

We shall not see the implementation of Depth First Traversal (or Depth First Search) in C programming language

Below is the source code for C Program to implement DFS Algorithm for Connected Graph which is successfully compiled and run on Windows System to produce desired output as shown below :

### SOURCE CODE : :

```/*  C Program to implement DFS Algorithm for Connected Graph */

#include<stdio.h>
#include<stdlib.h>

#define MAX 100

#define initial 1
#define visited 2

int n;    /* Number of nodes in the graph */
int state[MAX]; /*Can be initial or visited */

void DF_Traversal();
void DFS(int v);
void create_graph();

int stack[MAX];
int top = -1;
void push(int v);
int pop();
int isEmpty_stack();

main()
{
create_graph();
DF_Traversal();
}/*End of main()*/

void DF_Traversal()
{
int v;

for(v=0; v<n; v++)
state[v]=initial;

printf("\nEnter starting node for Depth First Search : ");
scanf("%d",&v);
DFS(v);
printf("\n");
}/*End of DF_Traversal( )*/

void DFS(int v)
{
int i;
push(v);
while(!isEmpty_stack())
{
v = pop();
if(state[v]==initial)
{
printf("%d ",v);
state[v]=visited;
}
for(i=n-1; i>=0; i--)
{
push(i);
}
}
}/*End of DFS( )*/

void push(int v)
{
if(top == (MAX-1))
{
printf("\nStack Overflow\n");
return;
}
top=top+1;
stack[top] = v;

}/*End of push()*/

int pop()
{
int v;
if(top == -1)
{
printf("\nStack Underflow\n");
exit(1);
}
else
{
v = stack[top];
top=top-1;
return v;
}
}/*End of pop()*/

int isEmpty_stack( )
{
if(top == -1)
return 1;
else
return 0;
}/*End if isEmpty_stack()*/

void create_graph()
{
int i,max_edges,origin,destin;

printf("\nEnter number of nodes : ");
scanf("%d",&n);
max_edges=n*(n-1);

for(i=1;i<=max_edges;i++)
{
printf("\nEnter edge %d( -1 -1 to quit ) : ",i);
scanf("%d %d",&origin,&destin);

if( (origin == -1) && (destin == -1) )
break;

if( origin >= n || destin >= n || origin<0 || destin<0)
{
printf("\nInvalid edge!\n");
i--;
}
else
{
}
}
}```

### OUTPUT : :

```/*  C Program to implement DFS Algorithm for Connected Graph */

Enter number of nodes : 6

Enter edge 1( -1 -1 to quit ) : 0 1

Enter edge 2( -1 -1 to quit ) : 0 2

Enter edge 3( -1 -1 to quit ) : 0 3

Enter edge 4( -1 -1 to quit ) : 1 3

Enter edge 5( -1 -1 to quit ) : 3 4

Enter edge 6( -1 -1 to quit ) : 4 2

Enter edge 7( -1 -1 to quit ) : 5 5

Enter edge 8( -1 -1 to quit ) : -1 -1

Enter starting node for Depth First Search : 0
0 1 3 4 2

Process returned 0```
