The flooding algorithm itself is pretty trivial, conceptually:
foreach (link in node)

Most of the work is creating the simulation and metric gathering details.
Yes you are right, I lack the programming skills but I need to complete it. The hard or the easy way. I dont understand what do you mean by graphs. In programming you mean? I dont think so... So the algorithm you mention here it should work?
