Below is the syntax highlighted version of from §4.5 Case Study: Small World.

 *  Compilation:  javac
 *  Execution:    java Bacon input.txt
 *  Dependencies:
 *  Reads in a data file containing movie records (a movie followed by a list
 *  of actors appearing in that movie), and runs breadth first search to
 *  find the shortest distance from the source (Kevin Bacon) to each other
 *  actor and movie. After computing the Kevin Bacon numbers, the user is prompted
 *  to enter actors and the program prints out the shortest chain.
 *  % java Bacon ../data/movies-top-grossing.txt
