Problem in using the Graph object in different function

151 100+
I am creating a graph using boost library, I am making the network using create_Network function()
i am adding the vertices to this graph by creating the object g of class Graph.
I am trying to use this object g in the another function get_neighbours()
but it is not giving any result.Should I make it global or should use constructor so that values stored in the graph(vertices) object(g), can be used in any function.

#include <boost/config.hpp>
#include <iostream>
#include <vector>
#include <utility>
#include <string>
#include <boost/graph/adjacency_list.hpp>
#include <boost/graph/graph_utility.hpp>
#include <boost/property_map.hpp>
#include "ed.h"
#include "ve.h"
using namespace boost;
using namespace std;

class Molecule
typedef adjacency_list<boost::vecS, boost::listS, boost::undirectedS, ve::VertexProperties, ed::EdgeProperties> Graph;
map<int,string> m;

void set_molecule_property(vector<string>& s4)
for (unsigned int i = 1; i <= s4.size(); i++)

void create_chemical_Network(vector<int> s1,vector<int> s2,vector<int> s3)
const int V = m.size()+1;
Graph g(V);
for (int i = 0; i <V ; i++)
add_edge(vertex(s1[i], g), vertex(s2[i], g), ed::EdgeProperties("single bond"), g);
add_edge(vertex(s1[i], g), vertex(s2[i], g), ed::EdgeProperties("double bond"), g);
add_edge(vertex(s1[i], g), vertex(s2[i], g), ed::EdgeProperties("triple_bond"), g);

void get_neighbours()
//Graph g(m.size()+1);
Graph g;
property_map<Graph, std::size_t ve::VertexProperties::*>::type
id = get(&ve::VertexProperties::index, g);
property_map<Graph, std::string ed::EdgeProperties::*>::type
name = get(&ed::EdgeProperties::name, g);
boost::graph_traits<Graph>::vertex_iterator vi, viend;
int vnum = 0;
for (boost::tie(vi,viend) = vertices(g); vi != viend; ++vi)
id[*vi] = vnum++;
graph_traits<Graph>::vertex_iterator i, end;
graph_traits<Graph>::out_edge_iterator ei, edge_end;
for (boost::tie(i,end) = vertices(g); i != end; ++i)
cout << id[*i]<<"("<<m[id[*i]]<<")" << " ";
for (boost::tie(ei,edge_end) = out_edges(*i, g); ei != edge_end; ++ei)
cout << " --" << name[*ei] << "--> " << m[id[target(*ei, g)]] << " ";
cout << endl;
print_edges(g, id);

int main(int,char* [])
using namespace boost;
Molecule mol;
int s11[]={1,1,2,2,3,3,4,4,5,5,6,6,6,7,7,7,8,8,8,8,9,9,10,1 0,11,11,12,12,13,14,17,19,19,19,20,20,20,21,21,21} ;
int s12[]={13,19,14,20,15,21,16,18,17,18,16,27,28,18,38,39, 9,10,22,23,11,12,16,17,14,24,13,25,15,15,26,29,30, 31,32,33,34,35,36,37};
int s13[]={1,1,1,1,1,1,2,1,1,2,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,2,1,1,2, 1,1,2,1,1,2,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1};
string s14[]={"O","O","O","N","N","N","N","C","C","C","C","C", "C","C","C","C","C","C","C","C","C","H","H","H","H ","H","H","H","H","H","H","H","H","H","H","H","H", "H","H"};
vector <string> s4;
vector <int> s1,s2,s3;

for (unsigned int i = 0; i < sizeof(s11)/sizeof(string); i++)

for (unsigned int i = 0; i < sizeof(s14)/sizeof(string); i++)
return 0;

Please Help me out of this pblm.I will be really thankful to you.

Your Graph objects are local to the funciton. Local variables are destroyed when the function ends.

The Graph object g in get_neighbours() is not the one created in create_chemical_Network().

You need to create your Graph object on the heap and then pass a pointer to it to your various functions.

Also, get_neighbours() has no arguments and returns a void. That means your entire application is inside this thing, in which case having the funciton at all is pointless. Or you are using global variables which are a disaster waiting to happen.

If you are using global variables, the you should read the Case Against Global Variables in the C/C++ HowTos forum.
