# fn()topologicalSortPerforms a topological sort on a directed acyclic graph (DAG).

Defined in ```void topologicalSort(topSort, g); ```

## Parameters

 `topSort` A topological ordering of the vertices. Types: String. A directed acyclic graph. Types: Directed Graph

## Detailed Description

A topological sort is a linear ordering of all its vertices such that if the graph contains an edge (u,v) then u appears before v in the ordering.

### Example

```#include <iostream>
#include <seqan/graph_algorithms.h>

using namespace seqan;

int main()
{
typedef Graph<Directed<> > TGraph;
typedef VertexDescriptor<TGraph>::Type TVertexDescriptor;
typedef Size<TGraph>::Type TSize;

// Create graph with 9 directed edges (0,3), (0,1), ...
TSize numEdges = 9;
TVertexDescriptor edges[] = {0, 3, 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 2, 5, 7, 5, 6, 6, 7, 6, 3, 8, 7};
TGraph g;
// Print graph.
std::cout << g << "\n";

// Create external property map with vertex labels.
String<std::string> nameMap;
std::string names[] = {"shirt", "tie", "jacket", "belt", "watch", "undershorts", "pants", "shoes", "socks"};
assignVertexMap(nameMap, g, names);

// Get vertex descriptor in topological sort order.
String<TVertexDescriptor> order;
topologicalSort(order, g);

// Write the result to stdout.
std::cout << "Topological sort: \n";
typedef Iterator<String<TVertexDescriptor> >::Type TStringIterator;
TStringIterator it = begin(order);
TStringIterator itEnd = end(order);
while (it != itEnd)
{
std::cout << getProperty(nameMap, getValue(it)) << ",";
goNext(it);
}
std::cout << "\n";

return 0;
}
```
