generic_multiedge_match(attr, default, op)[source]#

Returns a comparison function for a generic attribute.

The value(s) of the attr(s) are compared using the specified operators. If all the attributes are equal, then the constructed function returns True. Potentially, the constructed edge_match function can be slow since it must verify that no isomorphism exists between the multiedges before it returns False.

attrstring | list

The edge attribute to compare, or a list of node attributes to compare.

defaultvalue | list

The default value for the edge attribute, or a list of default values for the edgeattributes.

opcallable | list

The operator to use when comparing attribute values, or a list of operators to use when comparing values for each attribute.


The customized, generic edge_match function.
