As the title says it, I have made a program to implement adjacency list representation of graph. I wish to use it in implementing various graph algorithms like DFS, BFS, Dijkstra, etc. The program works fine for the test cases I put in it. But I am sure that there must be way more elegant, efficient and easier ways to do it. It'll be great if you could point out those. For example if I could use STL in this to make it shorter and easier, or if I should have not made the classes in the way I have, etc.

By the way, I have not freed memory on purpose, because I thought that would be not necessary for my goal. (which is to implement graph algorithms)

```
#include <iostream>
#include <cstdlib>
using namespace std;
class Node
{
public:
Node* next_node;//will be null if there is no "next node" or if the node is being used as an edge node
Node* next_edge;//will be null if no further edges are there
int node_name;
Node()
{
next_node=NULL;
next_edge=NULL;
node_name=-1;//means the node is empty
}
Node(int i)
{
next_node=NULL;
next_edge=NULL;
node_name=i;//name of node is the integer in i
}
bool isEmpty()
{
return node_name==-1;
}
};
class Adjacency_list
{
private:
int num_nodes;
Node* head;
public:
void makeList()
{
cout<<"\nEnter the number of nodes: ";
cin>>num_nodes;
Node* temp_node=NULL;//temporary pointer for moving over main nodes of adjacency list
Node* temp_edge=NULL;//temporary pointer for moving over edge nodes of a particular main node
for(int i=0;i<num_nodes;i++)
{
if(i==0)
{
head=new Node(i);//make first node
temp_node=head; //initialize temp pointer to point to first node
//code to add edges to 0th node
temp_edge=temp_node;
cout<<"\nEnter the nodes adjacent to node 0 (enter -1 to stop): ";
for(;;)
{
int c;
cin>>c;
if(c==-1)
break;
temp_edge->next_edge=new Node(c);
//cout<<endl<<c<<endl;
temp_edge=temp_edge->next_edge;
}
/*for(Node* t=head;t!=NULL;t=t->next_edge)
{
cout<<t->node_name;
if(t->next_edge!=NULL)
cout<<"--->";
}*/
//temp_node=temp_node->next_node;
}
else
{
temp_node->next_node=new Node(i);//make next node
temp_node=temp_node->next_node;//move temporary to next node (to ith node from (i-1)th node)
//otherwise following code will overwrite edges of (i-1)th node
//code to add edges to ith node
temp_edge=temp_node;
cout<<"\nEnter the nodes adjacent to node "<<i<<" (enter -1 to stop): ";
for(;;)
{
int c;
cin>>c;
if(c==-1)
break;
temp_edge->next_edge=new Node(c);
temp_edge=temp_edge->next_edge;
}
/*for(Node* t=temp_node;t!=NULL;t=t->next_edge)
{
cout<<t->node_name;
if(t->next_edge!=NULL)
cout<<"--->";
}*/
}
}
}
void display()
{
Node* temp_node=head;
Node* temp_edge=NULL;
for(;temp_node!=NULL;)
{
temp_edge=temp_node;
//cout<<temp_node->node_name;
//print all edges for this node
for(;temp_edge!=NULL; temp_edge=temp_edge->next_edge)
{
cout<<temp_edge->node_name;
if(temp_edge->next_edge!=NULL)
cout<<"--->";
}
temp_node=temp_node->next_node;//move to next main node
cout<<endl;
}
cout<<endl;
}
};
int main()
{
Adjacency_list a;
a.makeList();
a.display();
system("pause");
return 0;
}
```

Any help is appreciated !!

Thanks !!
