SHPATH  The Shortest Path
You are given a list of cities. Each direct connection between two cities has its transportation cost (an integer bigger than 0). The goal is to find the paths of minimum cost between pairs of cities. Assume that the cost of each path (which is the sum of costs of all direct connections belongning to this path) is at most 200000. The name of a city is a string containing characters a,...,z and is at most 10 characters long.
Input
s [the number of tests <= 10] n [the number of cities <= 10000] NAME [city name] p [the number of neighbours of city NAME] nr cost [nr  index of a city connected to NAME (the index of the first city is 1)] [cost  the transportation cost] r [the number of paths to find <= 100] NAME1 NAME2 [NAME1  source, NAME2  destination] [empty line separating the tests]
Output
cost [the minimum transportation cost from city NAME1 to city NAME2 (one per line)]
Example
Input: 1 4 gdansk 2 2 1 3 3 bydgoszcz 3 1 1 3 1 4 4 torun 3 1 3 2 1 4 1 warszawa 2 2 4 3 1 2 gdansk warszawa bydgoszcz warszawa Output: 3 2

Are the cities given in order according to their indices?

Wow. Really nice question. It teaches the importance of optimization.

JAVA users: Don't use iterator for loop, instead use explicit iterator for loop. I mean use for(int i = 0; i < list.size(); i++) and not for(int i : list) Last edit: 20150414 13:37:43

I am curious how they made it within 0.00s. it takes more than it for just reading the input.

I got A/C using C++ 4.9 but TLE with 4.3.2. My running time was 1.44. Last edit: 20150227 09:33:29
