Hi Tiago,

From the documentation of deg_sampler: "This function is called once per vertex, but may be called more times, if the degree sequence cannot be used to build a graph."

Now suppose my deg_sampler sometimes returns values greater than N-1, and if I don't want to generate a graph with multi-edges and self-loops, such values will be discarded. But suppose for first few vertices, drawn values were less than N (and hence are accepted) and the next value is greater than N-1. Now will all the values generated so far discarded or only the last value? I feel that discarding only the last value will create a bias if I want to sample degrees from a particular probability distribution. Could you please clarify this?

Thank you

SS
