Definition: Find all simple paths from a starting vertex (source) to a destination vertex (sink) in a directed graph. In an undirected graph, find all simple paths between two vertices.
See also all pairs shortest path.
Note: The paths may be enumerated with a depth-first search. The search can avoid repeating vertices by marking them as they are visited in the recursion, then removing the mark just before returning from the recursive call.
