It's not too hard to grasp the basics, @andyjim. A graph is a set of nodes connected by edges. Sometimes the edges connect back to a starting node, in a kind of circle. The circular set of nodes and connections is called a "cycle". A tree has nodes that don't connect back - they only grow "downwards", like displays of files system directories, or a collection of Leo nodes. With no cycles, it's called "acyclic". It's easier to work with acyclic graphs because you don't have to take special care to make sure you don't keep going around a cycle over and over. The little joke here is that you may have a (acyclic) tree of nodes in Leo, but once we get through overlaying our links and backlinks, who knows how many cycles might be formed when you follow all the links. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "leo-editor" group.
