Control Flow Path

What is Control Flow Path?

A control flow path is a graphical representation of all paths that might be traversed through a program during its execution. Most representations are of two types of blocks. Viz - An entry block through which control enters into the flow graph and the exit block through which all control flow leaves.

By this representation, we can also calculate cyclomatic complexity. It also enables us to verify reachability, relationship with other nodes, edges and loops effectively.
