Hello folks,
I am not too sure whether it is the right forum for algorithm or not, if not please let me know! I have just read something about distance vector routing algorithm in a java book. But I am still not too sure how it works and the idea behind it.
Does it take the distance between a to b to c to d and print the distance to the table or something? or does it take like the lowest cost of going from a to d or from a to c? I am confused and have no idea about this.
Your help in explaining it in detail will be much appreciated and if possible, is there any example of this that I can look at and try to understand it better? It will help me alot in understanding if I see examples with explanations!

Thank you in advance!
